For most incoming students, Orientation is their first sense of what student life entails. For upper year students like Zehra Haque, Orientation  looks a little different: it's is about passing on the knowledge and enthusiasm they’ve gained since their first days on campus, and sharing what being a Waterloo Warrior means to them.

From co-op to academic exchange, UWaterloo students have the opportunity to travel the world and share their experiences with us. Earlier this month, Waterloo International showcased 13 student photographers in a campus-wide competition for International Celebrations Week. The finalists displayed their artwork in the second-floor bridge connecting the Math and computing building (MC) and Davis Centre (DC). All afternoon, students and staff had the opportunity to evaluate the photo submissions and vote on their favourites.
