Moving forward with our #UWaterloolife

"This is your UWaterloolife".

Bust out your sparklers, toss that confetti and dust off your party hats, because there is so much to celebrate as we near the end of 2018. The year is wrapping up and there are many things to be proud of, especially according to the blog. From learning how to deal with failure to seeing a fellow Warrior become a finalist in a pageant to finding out how to travel on a budget.

This year, like all years before, we have helped students from different faculties and programs share the news of their success, no matter how big or small. And 2019 will be no exception! There are many more stories to share and many more tips to give. But there is one thing that will change…

The secret is out Warriors — the blog is officially retiring.

Within its five years, the UWaterloo Life Blog has hosted stories from countless student writers and voices documenting their journey at the University of Waterloo. What started as one story all the way back in 2013, has now snowballed into over 300 unique tales of adventure, perseverance, a little failure, and a lot of success.

Take a trip down memory lane by reading some of our past blogs!

The UWaterloo Life Blog has also touched on topics of achieving success, overcoming hardships and all the nuances of student life in between. We have been proud to document all that you have done to inspire and create change, one story at a time. There would have been no stories to tell without you, Warriors!
