Extracurricular activities

Too many to choose

When I think of university, I think of all work and no play. That is not the case at the University of Waterloo. At UW, there is a multitude of  extra-curriculars for anyone to take part in.

Roommates

Never alone

Your home away from home

Residence

Where will I live?

Exchange Students

Bianca and Tiffany in Scotland

Current 4th year AFM students, Bianca and Tiffany spoke with the SAF Communications and External Relations team about their experiences while on an exchange trip. Bianca went on an exchange to Sweden while Tiffany enjoyed a study term in London, UK!

Student Athletes

David, Amaris, and Zao took the time to talk to SAF’s Communications and External Relations team about their experiences being on a varsity team. They shared some tips on how they managed their time between academics and sports. In addition to these three student athletes, seven other student athletes from SAF programs were named on the 2018 President’s Academic Honour Roll, making the university proud.

International Co-op

How far I will go

Co-op opens up many doors, like the opportunity to travel and pursue international experiences. Co-op gives me the opportunity to become a globe-trotter.

Exploring new jobs

Expansion and Experience

Having to stay in the same job for all my co-op terms was a concern when I first looked into co-op. With co-op, I would be able to experience different ways of working based on environment and the way my employer runs operations.

Off to work we go

At the start of my research into university, I had not even considered co-op as an option. I originally thought that co-op seemed like it was bringing me into the working world early, but after looking into it a little more I realized it is rather useful.

Tuition Fees

University costs how much?

When I was younger, I thought that everyone had to pay the exact same amount for tuition. I also incorrectly assumed that your tuition included residence and a meal plan. The cost of tuition varies based on what program you apply for and whether you are a Canadian student or an international student.
