Anonymous asked: what is you @ Waterloo day all about?
You @ Waterloo Day (held in May) is open for anyone who have received an offer of admission to the University of Waterloo, to come on campus and be guided onto the next steps of your admission. You will be able to learn how to do course selection, and receive information on what you will need to do with residence and tuition. Furthermore, it is a great opportunity to visit campus if you have not had the chance before.
Hope that helped, and hope to see you at our You @ Waterloo Day,
Anonymous asked: which buildings are common to Arts and Business students ?
The simple answer to that would be it varies.
Definitely in first year you will find that you have quite a few classes in buildings that are located in the Arts Quad (i.e. Arts Lecture, Modern Languages, Hagey Hall, etc.) However, because where a class will be held depends entirely on how many students are in the class, and which spaces are available to accommodate the amount of students, you may find yourself in buildings all across campus. Speaking from personal experience, I’ve had classes held in not only Arts buildings, but in math and engineering buildings as well. You may also find yourself in classes that are held in our University Colleges like St. Jerome’s and Renison.
Hope that clears some things up.
Our Arts Goose has made its away around Europe and has come back to share some pictures with us. Thank-you to Saveria Romano, we hope your exchange is going well!
Anonymous asked: when is the deadline for scholarships??
Here is the information (eligibility and deadlines) for all open scholarships and scholarships open for Arts students.
The most wonderful time of the year is finally here! No… Not Christmas, but pretty close. Reading Week, where there is absolutely no school for an entire week, and it couldn’t be any more needed with midterms rolling about again. So here are some things you can do (or not):
1. SLEEP. SLEEP IN. SLEEP FOREVER.
Probably one of the only times this semester where you can sleep in and not feel guilty that you are missing a class or studying time for it. So please take advantage of this time to catch up on some much needed ZzZzz’s.
2.Spend time with your family
Reading week is definitely a great opportunity to spend some quality time with your family as you get to head back home for the break.
Sure, sometimes your siblings can annoy you
And maybe your mom can be overbearing at times
But don’t worry, your dad will always have your back
Just remember that they love you and have your best interest at heart. And don’t forget, this Monday, February 17th is Family Day!
3. Go out and do something fun!
This is your opportunity to do something fun, something exciting, something you just did not have time to do because of school.
So ladies, I wanna see some of this:
And boys, I wanna see some of this:
But I do not want to see any of this:
So what will you be doing? I suggest finding cool things that are happening in your city. If you’re from the GTA, grab a friend and go to the Ripley’s Aquarium that opened not too long ago. If you live in Hamilton, KANYE WEST IS COMING TO TOWN! Go see Yeezus in action (because I know I will be)! If you’re staying in the Kitchener-Waterloo region, there is a Bring On The Sunshine Festival on Monday, February 17th to help celebrate Black History Month. A good resource to find out what events are going on in your city, is the city’s website. So go out with your friends and come back with some amazing stories to share!
4. Lastly… Study. (Even if only a little bit.)
Womp, womp, womp. The dreaded studying.
Sorry I had to add it in but it’s true. Most of you probably will have some midterms after the break and will need to do some studying to ensure good results on them. I mean after all, it is called reading week, so you must do some reading. In the midst of the break you may start to forget how to be productive, but you can’t get into that mind set.
You don’t have to push yourself too hard because you do deserve a little break. Just make sure you do enough reading so that you don’t come back from the break and the night before your exam looking like this:
HAPPY READING WEEK EVERYONE!!

Anonymous asked: Hi, I was wondering how are the co-op jobs for students in Arts and Business Co-op Psychology? And is it hard to stay in program? Will the university take into consideration if an illness affected your average? My average is still in the 80's, but I was just wondering. Thanks!
Here are some examples of past co-op job placements from our Arts & Business Co-op, Psychology students:
- Project Coordinator, Investments Division at Manulife Financial
- Instructional Technology Support Assistant at the Humber Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning
- Marketing Coordinator for The Regional Municipality of York
- e-Marketing Coordinator at Soer Software Development Inc
As for your other questions, ultimately it is up to you as a student to be responsible for you own progress towards fulfilling your degree requirements.
If an illness is affecting your grades, that is something you may want to discuss with your professors individually as it depends on whether or not they are able to make other arrangements for you.
If you are struggling in some areas there are many places that you can reach out to for some extra help. You can always contact your TA’s for course related help. There is also a Student Success Office located on the second floor of South Campus Hall that offer study sessions and workshops to help you improve in any areas you are having difficulty with.
I hope that helped and good luck with the rest of your studies,

Anonymous asked: Hi! I was wondering about co-op. Are you allowed to find your own co-op placement if you want to? What process would you have to go through? Would you still have to go through the whole interviewing process?
Yes you are allowed to find your own job outside of Jobmine. However, it is recommended you apply to jobs through both Jobmine and your own individual search. It does allow you to have a higher chance of finding employment.
If you were to find your own job, you will need to get it approved by your student advisor before it can officially count as a work term credit.
