Hello hello! It’s been a busy few weeks and it’s sure to get even crazier as classes finish and final exams begin (IN TWO WEEKS?!?!) Through all the insanity, life at Waterloo has been pretty sweet!
Open house was a blast! It was really cool to talk to high school students, parents, and other UWaterloo students and staff throughout the day and to give tours for my program. I’ve also had a few shadows this month (high school students who follow me around for the day), a very fun time as well!
Something I’ve realized even more in the last few weeks is just how awesome my professors are. They are so willing to help whenever they can, in person or on class discussion boards. My professors just want to teach us and help us out, and it is greatly appreciated.
Of course, I can’t forget to mention the support of my class! Waterloo Engineering has a cohort system, meaning you take almost all of your classes with the same group of people for the entirety of your degree. We’re about 120 students in the nano program, and we have a great dynamic of helping each other understand and practice the material. Not to mention our knack for hilarious jokes and memes throughout the semester. I’m hopeful that the next 5 years with my class will be just as enjoyable as this semester!
TL;DR: Waterloo has a bunch of cool people that are nice.
ALSO we got some snow this weekend! 🙂 Bye for now
