A SNAPSHOT OF YOUR WEEK

MON, SEP 2 | Welcome to the Jungle

Welcome to the University of Waterloo! We are excited to welcome you to the UW math community! On this first day of faculty programming, there will be a focus on meeting your peers and getting familiar with the Math buildings on campus. With fun events both in- and outdoors, this day is sure to be a great time (and don’t worry, lunch is provided)!

TUES, SEP 3 | Earn Your Pink Tie

Get ready for an action-packed day! There'll be a Nerf War spanning an entire building, and participate in the annual n+1 legged race. You'll also learn about the Faculty of Mathematics and the classes you’ll take. Afterwards, have lunch with your future professors and program advisors!

WED, SEP 4 | Nervous? Don't Be!

It's the first day of classes! You got this.

FRI, SEP 7 | We've got Fun and Games!

The choice is yours this Friday night! Get active by venturing on a scavenger hunt through the MC jungle, defending your team mascot in an epic rap battle, or rescuing special guests from the depths of the Amazon; chill with your new friends over board games and origami; enjoy snacks and bubble tea in the C&D; and much more! At the end of your expedition, you’ll discover the winner of Math Orientation 2019 (and maybe win some awesome door prizes)!

SAT, SEP 8 | Smells Like School Spirit

Cheer on our Waterloo Warriors at Black and Gold Day before joining in on the evening's silent disco event.
