Statement Regarding the Discoveries at the Marieval Indian Residential School

The faculty and staff of the College join people across the country in expressing their condolences to the members of Cowessess First Nation and to all who have been harmed, directly or indirectly, by Canada’s system of residential schools. The discovery of approximately 750 unmarked graves on the site of the former Marieval Indian Residential School is a bitter sequel to news that emerged from Kamloops two weeks ago. While the discovery of even one unmarked grave is too many, it is certain that further discoveries will be made in the coming months at other sites across the country.

Message Regarding the Murders in London

We write to you today on behalf of the College to express our solidarity with all Muslim members of the St. Paul’s community. We condemn the recent murder of four members of a Muslim family in London and are appalled by the hatred and bigotry that engendered it. Those of us who live, work and study at St. Paul’s regard its diversity as one of its primary strengths.  We are pleased that our community includes many Muslim members and we want them to know that they have our full support in these difficult days.

Student supports thrive at St. Paul’s

women in engineering

For many, starting your first year of university can be an intimidating, overwhelming, but very exciting time in your life. To ease the transition period between high school and university, many Living Learning Communities (LLC) have been created in the residence buildings at UWaterloo.

Various LLCs are housed across the residences on campus to allow students studying in the same Faculty or academic cluster to live near one another. St. Paul’s is home to the Faculty of Engineering LLC, Financial Analysis and Risk Management LLC and Women in Engineering LLC.

We caught up with some former students from the Women in Engineering LLC to learn what their experience living at the College with their classmates looked like.
