What advice would you give to current students?

Your academic career can have its ups and downs and there are times that you wonder if you are making the right decisions for your future. It is during those times that strong leadership and mentorship are necessary.

Have trust in your professors and their leadership at UWaterloo.

My professors were supportive, encouraging, and open to suggestion. Their doors were always open and advice was sound. I had trust and confidence in their words. UWaterloo professors are trusted mentors, both inside and outside the classroom and their steadfast support was critical to my success as a graduate student.
