Elven army? Almost, it’s the UWaterloo Archery club!

UWaterloo archers channeled their inner Lord of The Rings spirit, hitting the target at this year’s Inter-university Archery Tournament. At the end of March, the club travelled to the University of Toronto for the fifth annual Ontario-wide competition. Shooting 60 arrows each was no sweat for the UWaterloo teammates, and much like Robin Hood, the team aimed true, winning first place overall with 3,058 points. 

Keeping calm in an emergency

Imagine what it'd be like to score $65,000 in prizes. You'd be a pretty lucky student. Daniel Pracsovics is this year's luckiest student across Canada.

Daniel, a Physics and Astronomy student, won more than $65,000 in prizes this past Saturday at the Bombshelter Pub thanks to the Canada’s Luckiest Student contest hosted by Student Life Network. Daniel was joined at the big announcement by 30 of his friends and family who came from Cobourg to celebrate his winnings.

Faculties collaborate to bring home the gold

We've heard the saying "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts". A fourth-year Biomedical Science student has proven this to be true by leading a diverse group of students to success at an international synthetic biology competition.
