Why I love my program

I really love the blend of theoretical physics and astronomy with the hands-on aspects we get in the lab courses, like PHYS 370L when we used the campus observatory to make our own observations.

Why University of Waterloo?

When I toured UW I felt that it had a really strong sense of community between the students which was a huge part of why I came here. Also, the co-op program is really unique and has given me amazing experiences I wouldn't have had otherwise, like working with satellite data at Environment and Climate Change Canada or participating in a stratospheric balloon campaign in Northern Ontario.
