Happy End of Orientation Warriors!

We hope you had a spectacular week meeting new people in your faculty, navigating campus, and cramming in as much fun as you can before classes begin.  Everyone involved in it certainly enjoyed every aspect of bringing Orientation to life for you. 

Evolving from mentee to mentor

Maddie Campbell

John C. Maxwell once said, “Leadership is not about titles, positions, or flowcharts. It is about one life influencing another.” No matter who you are or where you come from, everybody wants the opportunity to show off their leadership chops.

A student of distinction

For the fourth year in a row, a UWaterloo student has been recognized for her dedication and leadership skills by the Ontario Pharmacists Association (OPA) as the recipient of the Student of Distinction Award

A sustainable leader

At age 26, Jillian Rodak has already made her mark in the sustainability world. So much so that Corporate Knights magazine has named Jillian one of this year’s Canadian top 30 young professionals under 30.

Corporate Knights magazine, through a panel of judges, recognizes 30 young entrepreneurs and activists under the age of 30 that they foresee being the leaders of sustainable development.

Jillian, a Masters of Environment and Business (MEB) student, is more than deserving of this achievement. She has helped top brands use technology to improve their corporate social responsibility programs.
