Sunday, April 1, 2018

The University of Waterloo recognized a long-standing member of our community with an honourary degree in Gooseography and Aviation today in a special ceremony. Professor of aviation and retired Canadian astronaut, Chris Hadfield, presented Mr. Goose with the diploma and thanked him for his many contributions around campus in an acoustic rendition of R. Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly." 

Professor Hadfield said, "I've had a chance to fly a lot of different airplanes, but it was nothing like flying with Mr. Goose."

Mr. Goose thanked Professor Hadfield and all in attendance with a resounding HONK HONK HONK! 

Happy April Fools from all of us at the Student Success Office. Don't forget to submit goose nest locations to Goose Watch
