Exciting first days at the University of Waterloo

As soon as I accepted my offer for the Sustainability and Financial Management program at the University of Waterloo, I realized that I had one more big choice to make. 

Since I live in the Kitchener-Waterloo region, it made sense to stay at home (after all, I had my whole room set up just the way I like it, and the pandemic meant that my couch and I were very good friends). 

Expectations vs. reality of my first day at UWaterloo

When I was in high school, I did a lot of research on university life and I thought I pretty much knew what was going to happen. But the reality on my first day of school was a lot different.

The most exciting and possibly most nerve-racking time of your life!

Several thousand students along with their families attended the in-person Ontario Universities Fair (OUF) this year. They visited the booths of various renowned universities and collected information to help them make probably one of the biggest decisions of their lives, a decision that will influence their career and in a broader sense, the person they become.

As a current undergrad student at the University of Waterloo who was in the same place a few years ago, I couldn’t help but see a reflection of myself in these students. 

Asking all the right questions at OUF

The Ontario Universities’ Fair (OUF) was held in-person for the first time in three years. Students, families, and guests came to the Metropolitan Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC) to meet representatives from universities across the province. Prospective students were able to ask important questions and receive the information they need to make an informed decision about their future.
