Has anyone seen these crazys in their cars shout and scream on pedestrians for no reason. Especially on immigrants at night on weekends.

This happened with me and my friends multiple times on Albert Street, Waterloo. We usually go out for late night walks. We are having good time when suddenly a speeding car comes and people sitting in it scream at us throw stuffs like empty beer bottles and garbage for no reason at all. This is totally crazy, I don't even know how to react. Just one question - what do you get from all of this? Fun? Really?

Tron/Mech Self-Study Work Term Report

Nothing I’ve done at my coops have been detailed enough for me to write a whole 30 page report on.

I’m thinking of using the work term report as an opportunity to do a detailed personal project, one I sink a lot of time into and gain a lot from

Any ideas on topics or inspiration from what other people have done? I’m not really sure what entails a self study too much.

I really want to make the most of this project / report. Appreciate the help!

Should I just accept a mediocre (new grad) software dev job?

I’m graduating from CS this Fall and looking for jobs now. I have been applying but the job market looks rough and that appears to be the consensus.

My last (internship) employer is offering a return offer for a base salary of ~75k. I really enjoyed working there as an intern. However other aspects of this job, doesn’t align perfectly with my situation, like the location.

I’m by no means a CS god and my past internships have been just OK. But I really thought, atleast when entering this program that id have better/more options after graduating :( I really wanted to eventually work in the US, even if it was for a mid company.

Should I hold out and look for better options or just secure my return offer? Perhaps I accept and commit to work for at least a year or two and then look to move if a better opportunity arises? Any advice is appreciated 🙏

TDLR: job market bad, one offer, ok pay, accept or gamble for better job?

Is UWFlow still maintained?

The course schedule isn't showing courses for Fall 2024, and displays Fall 1900 as a past term.

For instance, here's the results for CS 341, which is offered next term.

I know we can search for classes on Quest, but I'm wondering if UWFlow is still maintained at all? Any current UW students working on this?

Core Sciences ~ Transfer questions

Hey there. So I got rejected from Comp Sci and got the core science alt offer. So, I know at the end your first year you have to switch out and transfer into something else in the Dpt of Science.

So my question is, what happens if your grades aren't high enough to transfer? Are you kicked out?

Also, what kinda of grades do you need to actually transfer into comp sci or data sci or smth?

Thanks !

To recent geo eng graduates, how’s the job market? More specifically (if you’re willing to divulge), how’s the pay? I’m in 12th grade and I got deferred from civil eng and chose geo. While I have no qualms about studying it (frankly, it’s what I want to study), my mother’s convinced I’ll be broke. Let’s humour her for a minute—do her words hold some truth? Should I back out now?

Civil Engineering Laptop

I know this is a common question but I can't find anyone with my exact situation. I'm going into civ eng next year and I currently have a M1 Macbook Air and a Gaming PC. From what I've read you can get by using a macbook but you have to connect to virtual machines to use any CAD software. So, I was wondering if I should buy a new windows laptop or just bring both my mac and PC. If you have any laptop suggestions for me that'd be great too. Thanks!

Hello all,

Theres a good chance I might be attending Laurier in September for BBA and I want to know what placements people get through the co-op program, particularly in finance/banking.
I've already looked at LinkedIn and other reddit threads but would like to see if maybe a more up to date version can be made.

Please drop below the placements you did and which year of the program you were in when you were doing it.

(If I need to move this to a megathread please let me know and I will delete)

What's the "best" Indian snack and/or chip out there?

So maybe an odd question, but I often get deliveries of things to my house for part of what I do for work. I always try to leave out stuff like cold bottled water and potato chips for anyone who may be dropping crap off in the warmer months. Now it seems like half the people that deliver stuff are from India or Sri Lanka or whatever, so I'm wondering what would be some cool snacks to leave out? I don't mean the lame "Taste of India" Lay's chips or anything, but popular snacks/chips/whatever that would be appreciated. I have a ton of jackfruit "chips" and some mixture of...idk stuff from Hyderabad that people like to take but any other ideas would be cool.

Also if you've never done this, consider it! Delivering packages is shitty work, especially if you're working for a private company and not Canada Post. If you see your delivery coming to the door, open it up, say thanks, hand them some water and whatever and they'll love it. That goes for the guys that do the garbage and recycling collection too. Canada Post employees as well. Some cold ass water or something and some carbs helps. In winter I even try to give out gloves or hand warmers or something useful too.

Anyway hit me up with Indian snack ideas pls.

Dr. James Whitfield Was Fired Today :(

The first-year engineering professor was fired today because his students were consistently scoring too high on their exams. Dr. James Whitfield, was known for his engaging teaching style and his dedication to ensuring that his students thoroughly understood the material.

Despite multiple warnings from the administration, Dr. Whitfield continued to produce top-performing students. "We warned him several times," said Dr. Margaret Boyle, Dean of Engineering. "The first year is meant to humble these students, to control their expectations. These kids come in with very high grades from high school. They need to learn that university is different."

Another professor, who wished to remain anonymous, expressed frustration. "He's making the rest of us look bad," they said. "We all have to deal with the same students, but he's the only one whose class averages were so high. It's just not realistic."

Dr. Whitfield's teaching methods, which included detailed explanations, real-world applications, and extensive office hours, were beloved by his students. However, this approach led to consistently high grades, which the university deemed problematic.

"The University of Waterloo attracts some of the brightest students in the country, with many incoming freshmen boasting averages of 99% or higher," Dr. James Whitfield argues. "If these students are now receiving grades in the 60s and 70s, it is a reflection of the failed standards of the university and the lack of effectiveness of the professors. In my opinion, a low average should indicate a problem, not success."

Dr. Whitfield shared his distress over the situation. "I don't know how I'm going to afford my rent next month," he said, his voice tinged with worry. "I have three kids, I don't know where I'm going to go. I love teaching; it's all I've ever wanted to do."

When asked if he expects his students to speak up for him, Dr. Whitfield sighed deeply. "I love my students, but the university has already destroyed their spirit. I don't expect much. They've been conditioned to keep their heads down and avoid making waves."

ETA: It's a shitpost. James Whitfield isn't real. But there is a morsel of truth here, this piece was inspired by my time as a TA.

feeling like a failure

I'm in the class of 2025 for CS. Mental health, burnout and physical health problems have led me to failing/WDing enough courses that I'll need to take 2 extra semesters to graduate. Seeing all my highschool friends/people I've met at UW with cali/ny/FAANG coops and I can barely get interviews at startups has really made me feel like I failed. I haven't done anything over my years at uni. No partying, no 4.0 gpa, no FAANG, no cali. I just feel like I failed in all the different aspects of my life and seeing everyone else doing so great leaves me feeling really bitter.

Kitchener Farmers Market

Hi there!! Just a little info post for people who live in the KW region. If you want cheap produce/fresh food, the downtown Kitchener market is where it’s at. Not to be confused with the St Jacobs market. The downtown market is WAY cheaper IMO.

It’s located at 300 King Street East. SATURDAYS 7am-2pm. Cash only.

You do need to do a bit of figuring out of which booths are the best (my personal favourite is Gmach Farms.. their stuff seems to last the longest in my fridge!)

Examples of yesterdays prices:

****prices do vary booth to booth. I usually do a lap to first to assess the situation.

Berries 5 containers for 10$ mix and match

Asparagus 3$ a bunch or 4 for 10$

Beans 3$ a bag

Peppers 2$ a bag

Live lettuce 3$ a bunch (so delish omg)

There is meat as well. It’s not “super cheap”, but it’s great quality.. and we find the cuts way bigger. Ex. 3 decently sized steaks for 27$ (there was a discount if you bought 3). Meat booths accept credit.

Anyway, hope this helps! Bring your reusable bags. Street parking is easiest. There is a parkade, but it’s usually a gongshow. It’s less crowded before 9am, cheaper close to 2pm.

Need some advice: a lot of situations happening to me with "required to withdraw" standings

I recently got an email from the university saying that my standing is "Required to Withdraw – May not continue in faculty”. I've checked other posts to get some help, but I can't find any similar to my situation.

The email states that I have two options:

The thing is: I am not registered for spring 2024 since I was a co-op student and had a sequence 3 (off period on spring 2024). I'm curious if I will get kicked out immediately or will be able to study for the next (fall 2024) term.

Another thing is I am an international student, so I'm afraid that my study permit will expire as soon as I withdraw from the school. It says on the email,

Just had some guy knocking on our bedroom door out back saying he's from Stats Can looking to do a random survey...

It's a Sunday on a long weekend.. not sure if this is legit or not but he went to some of the surrounding buildings before leaving the area.

I think I he knocked on our downstairs neighbors door too before he went; but I'm not sure. I heard him through the bathroom window at the side of the building and we have no windows toward the back to see what was going on.
