Inspirational Individual: Jaydum Hunt

Pile of books.

The route to post-secondary education isn’t the same for everyone, especially when it comes to graduate studies. I met Jaydum Hunt at a meeting for work, and she really caught my attention when she happened to mention that she would be entering a master’s program as a mature student this fall.

Glowing with Pride

Raised Pride flag at UWaterloo.

June may officially be Pride Month, but every month can be full of the beautiful colours of Pride! As such, I talked to the current Service Coordinators at the Federation of Students’ Glow Centre for Sexual and Gender Diversity at the University of Waterloo, Gabriella Verdone and Judy Liu, about what they do on campus year round. I hope this interview helps keep the conversation about LGBTQ+ Pride going!

Recognizing Research (Assistants): Seth Mahon

Faculty and students at Waterloo have brilliant minds and conduct innovative research. As such, a number of students get involved by becoming Research Assistants (RAs). I volunteered as an RA in my first year, and one of the best parts of the position was the opportunity to learn from, and learn about, other students. Naturally, I was excited to speak to current RA Seth Mahon about his interests, his experience as an RA, and what he would like to say to other students who are interested in research positions.

The long road ahead: Waterloo’s fencing team begins their journey

Two years ago the Student Success Office met Marc Lo, a student taking a stab at the competition alone. Now as he reaches the final stretch of his Waterloo career, Marc stands alongside a talented team of fencers representing the University of Waterloo in the Ontario Universities Athletics (OUA) Men’s Fencing Competition for first time since its founding. By competing at the together, they hope to establish a presence for fencing here at Waterloo and eventually be recognized as a varsity sport.

The Art of Denim

Question number one: Have you by any chance seen someone with extra-large holes in her jeans on campus? 

Question number two: Were you surprised to notice that she had some interesting art adorning those holes and think to yourself, “Wow, that’s pretty neat?”

I’m Fabiola Alvarez, and I am a 4A Legal Studies & Sociology co-op student. In fall 2017, I worked at the Student Success Office as the Global Learning Associate. I worked with a lovely team of Global Learning Coordinators (GLCs) who work so incredibly hard to make the exchange program possible.

Lights, Camera, Pageant!

November was a pretty big month for the Chinese-Canadian community in the Greater Toronto Area. That’s when the news and excitement of the Miss Chinese Toronto Pageant is buzzing in the media the most. 

And, this year’s pageant is extra special for the Waterloo community, because a fellow Warrior was a top 10 finalist!

What makes a good story? 

The first thing that might pop into your mind is the need for three-dimensional characters, and the complex relationships they have with one another.  Next, the themes throughout the story have got to draw the audience in.  It must have a compelling plot, otherwise it could lose the audience’s attention halfway.
