Waterloo Undergraduate Advice

Social Advice

What is an affordable way to watch movies with friends?

If you’re looking to watch movies with friends then you can either buy cheaper (Tuesday prices) at the Student Life Center or Waterloo has a list of streaming sites where you can watch free movies.

How can I become more involved on campus?

Join different clubs or societies! They’re a great way to make friends and manage your time better. Plus, it makes going through a school term much more fun.

How do I build my social skills and get out of my comfort zone?

Take up the opportunities for meeting people. You never know who you might meet. If you don’t put yourself out there and take chances, it’s much harder to find a relationship, friendships, or even study buddies.

What can I do to prevent being affected by the competitive environment?

Be kind. Celebrate your friends’ successes when they get a co-op job and support them when they’re struggling too. Waterloo is so competitive and sometimes it can be hard to navigate through, so make sure you’re giving and getting a good support network.
