The Fall is one of my favourite times to be on campus. The season is marked by the enthusiasm of new students, as well as renewed comradery for those returning and refreshed commitment from faculty and staff.

2016 has been a great year for UWaterloo, thanks to all the hard work of so many students, staff, faculty, partners and friends. 

I can't wait to start the new year with you, in celebration of Waterloo's 60 years of innovation.

Until then, here's a recap of some great experiences and events we had in 2016.
