You don't always get to experience your first year and your last year twice; and that's not because I failed! Here in England, typical University and College programs last three years. Coming here on exchange in my third year, I got to adapt to the lifestyles of both the graduating students and the new incoming "freshers" as they would say, as it would be my last year of studies in the UK, but also my first year at University.
Together with our colleagues in Computer Science, Jessica Thompson and I have received a grant from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI) for the creation of a facility for Fully Interactive Physio-digital Spaces (FIPS), a globally unique research facility for Human-Computer Interaction
In early April, just ahead of the much-anticipated theatre season, 30 leaders from all over Canada came together in Stratford, Ontario. It was the semi-annual meeting of the Canadian Digital Media Network (CDMN), hosted by the University of Waterloo Stratford campus - a founding partner of the network. This group of like-minded organizations represents nine provinces and one territory.
University of Waterloo Stratford campus is the Committee Crew Sponsor for this year's Relay For Life in Stratford and hosted the first Relay Reunion event. Over 50 people attended and 73 registrations came in that night. The planning crew wants to say thank you to everyone that came out and helped to pull it together. Relay For Life in Stratford celebrates its 15th year anniversary and it's off to a good start! To date they have 270 registrations which includes 32 Survivors!
