Students on campus

Hey Warriors, the countdown is on! Did you know that Orientation kicks off in 38 days and classes start in 47 days!? Are you Waterloo Ready? Here's a few more tips and reminders to make sure you're all set.

Some of the info below was included in an email you received on July 21, but we've also added in some extras! Use these quick links to jump ahead: 

Join your community

Starting something new and unfamiliar can be intimidating. However, when you talk with others who've been through it themselves, it can help to ease those concerns. Knowing what to expect can help you to enjoy the experience even more.

That's why you've been matched with an upper-year student - called a Waterloo Ready peer mentor! You now have access to a virtual community with other students in your faculty on Microsoft Teams. They can't wait to meet you!

High school vs. university

The transition from high school to university can be overwhelming, but one of the best ways to feel prepared is to know what to expect. In your Waterloo Ready Modules, we’ve shared a ton of great tips on how you can best prepare. In the video below, Celine and Vishal share what you can expect of the differences between high school and university.

Did you know we also share these videos on our Waterloo Ready Tik Tok? We post new videos each week! If you're having trouble with the above YouTube link? Try this alternative link.
