Great local picnic area suggestions please (XPOSTED)

Hi.

Saturday is supposed to be nice in the area and I want to take my GF out for a picnic.

What local outdoor areas do you guys and gals recommend in or near the tri-cities area, that is at least a little scenic and maybe somewhat quiet? Any decent suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

Failing a work term report for Systems design engineering?

I have a bad feeling that my report is going to get a failing grade since it was a little rushed. I know that there's a resubmission opportunity but I'm just curious since as far as I could tell SYDE doesn't(?) have the same policy as Mechanical or ECE where you can miss the first deadline for your report and just submit the report in your next work term. Has anyone in SYDE failed a work term report before?

Just here to rant about waterloo

Lately I've been very stressed about the work i have to do and how i have like 7 assignments due every week. Im barely able to study enough for the quizzes and end up guessing a few on a dumb fuckin mobius program. I just don't understand what the thought process waterloo had when they decided to give 10million things to do when the whole first year is online. I am basically paying 3.5k to teach my self and do quizzes online with due dates that are all close together!! Couple of days ago I had a mental breakdown at 4am after realizing i failed to submit something and ended up calling my parents to ask if i can just take a gap year. But of course, they said first year is the same for everybody. However, I feel like my friends who go to mc master and UFT still have time to enjoy some leisure time comparing to me who is just doing school work from 10am to 2am. Tbh i have been doing poor with my time management which is why im staying up so late everyday.

I was just wondering if anyone is thinking the same or having a miserable life like me right now. I have no motivation to do anything and just want to quit even though it is wrong. I had some expectations for first year in university cause thats probably the most exciting year out of the 4 years, but since thats gone i have been feeling very disappointed lately. Also, the fact that waterloo made classes so hard to understand (math 137 and math 135) even though its online is pissing me off even more!! My cs 115 proff is also kinda stupid because when there would be some questions where majority of the students don't know how to do including me, students would comment to request for help. However, this proff simply says "take a break and come back to it" LIKE BITCH I NEED HELP NOT A BREAK. But anyways, im posting this because i needed to express my feeling lately somewhere lol. lets survive first year together ppl T.T

Looking for science undergrads

I am doing a project in my high school about university research (Capstone project). I need several Science undergrads currently attending the UWaterloo to answer this survey. Your first names would also be appreciated to prove to my teacher that I did communicate with students.

  1. What is the social Environment like at UWaterloo?
  2. How much did you pay for tuition(rough estimate accepted)?
  3. Did you receive any financial assistance from the school?
  4. If you are living in campus housing, is it worth the price?
  5. Is it worth attending UWaterloo out of province (I live in British Columbia)?
  6. How much schoolwork do you do on average per week?
  7. What would you rate your profs out of ten on their clarity and assignment difficulty?
  8. What was your high school GPA in grade 12?

Details are appreciated.

Quick question about credits at Laurier

Ok so I’m kinda confused , I’m comparing the neuroscience program at York with the psy and neuro program at Laurier why are the credits so different it says at York “ The Neuroscience degree is 120 credits including Neuroscience, general education, basic science, and prerequisite courses . Whereas in Laurier “ The Honours BSc Psychology and Neuroscience program consists of 20.0 credits, including at least 10.0 but not more than 12.0 credits in Psychology. A minimum of 13.5 senior credits must be included in the program. Electives must include at least 1.0 credits from a discipline outside of the Faculty of Science”.

Like am I being dumb or 🙃

Side note - I just moved from England last year so I’m not that familiar with how credits work.

How's the real estate market in Kitchener Waterloo?

Looking to buy my first investment property. Looking at the rentals, there are like 10 properties for rent... I thought it's a school city with lots of rentals, but I'm not seeing a lot.

However, the few I'm seeing, are going up for 2.3-3k, which is quite a lot for a small city.

Just testing out the waters to hear your thoughts compared to the GTA.

What is your play/study balance on coop?

I am on my 2nd coop, one I am very happy with and could see myself doing full-time. I finally feel I have time to do stuff I enjoy. I have the opportunity to exercise and explore hobbies that I know I would have nowhere near the time to explore on a study term. However, there's always the feeling that I'm.. not doing enough or being left behind. Every time I draw, or spend 1 or 2 hours in nature, I feel guilty for not reviewing my data structures, and that I should be prepping to get FAANG next coop.

It's like there's one part of me that's saying "hey chill. Getting that position might not make you any happier. You're in a great position in life right now, just take time to enjoy it". and there's another part telling me I'll never get a better chance in my life to be in a position to get a co-op that might let me graduate with a $100-$150k job offer and I should put in the work now.

Obviously there is a middle ground, which is why I want to ask you guys, what's your middle ground during a coop term and have any of you felt this?

Advice for surviving math as a CS student?

Hi everyone, hope you're having a good day! Sorry in advance for ranting. Just posting because I kind of needed to get this off my chest but can't say anything IRL.

I'm a first-year CS student. I enjoy programming/tech (which is why I went into CS), but I never liked math much. I knew that I would have to take a lot of math courses, but my initial thought was just to suck it up like I did in high school (to get the prereqs for uni), do my best, and try to take other courses I enjoy. I took two humanities courses (English + elective) which I do like, but my two math courses (MATH 135 and 137) have become really stressful.

I was enrolled in a specialized STEM program in high school and had an absolute blessing of a math teacher (with really lenient marking and great teaching) for all my 12th-grade math courses. All my classmates were also very chill and everyone would help each other out. As a result, I didn't do too badly despite being average at math and disliking the material (didn't want to disappoint my teacher lol). I don't think I fully appreciated what I had at the time. Even though a lot of my old classmates also went into CS here at UW, the camaraderie isn't really there anymore, between the Policy 71 horror stories and sense of competition. None of my closest friends are at UW either, and I don't want to bother them with my course material.

I do my best to keep up with the math material and watch the lectures. However, I never had an easy time concentrating, especially in courses I didn't like (more often than not, I just read the course/lecture notes or the textbook, and watch the lecture video - if it exists - at 2x speed for harder topics I'm having trouble with). I really don't feel motivated to do work outside of what I need to know for assignments/quizzes. It's even more frustrating because there are no part marks on the Mobius quizzes - it just feels bad when my thought process was right but I get the question wrong because of troll multiple-choice answers (yes, I know multiple-choice is often like this but it just feels so discouraging!).

I'm just feeling stressed and stuck. I was really looking forward to my first year of uni, but everything - especially my math courses - makes this feel like march break with a painful amount of homework. I'm still living at home with my parents. I've slept about two hours during the last 48 trying to stay on top of all my course work. I know I should sleep more, but the guilt eats at me when I go to sleep without finishing my work. I used to discord call with my friends and play games in the evening, but I'm usually just on call doing schoolwork now (sometimes I cave in and play a game of Among Us hahaha). Every time I click the LEARN link to one of my math courses I feel like I'm taking 2 years off my lifespan, and every time Mobius crashes and I have to log in again I just feel like closing my laptop and crying. I'm just trying to get through these first (hopefully only two) online terms while praying that it'll be better in person. I don't even want to try attending office hours/posting homework questions on Piazza because even thinking about math stresses me out.

I don't want to transfer out of CS. I console myself with the fact that any programming/tech job I get after I graduate probably won't need any high-level math, and I still really love coding. I'm just trying to do well in my math courses and get past these few years of mandatory math. I know that I can and probably will pass my math courses enough to graduate - it's just a matter of how much I kill myself mentally doing it. I don't expect the same marks I had in high school, but I'm still a perfectionist and want to do as well as possible. Or maybe I should ditch this mindset altogether and try for a 60%+. I don't know. Sometimes I wish I didn't go to high school with a program full of mathematically-gifted students where getting <95% was basically failing in the eyes of your peers. That mindset is really hard to get rid of now, even when I know it isn't realistic anymore. I'm just so tired.

Has anyone had a similar situation, or does anyone have any advice to help me survive math? Or difficult/disliked courses in general? Thanks for reading - writing this certainly helped me feel a bit better, though I have to go do a math quiz now. If anyone has any thoughts, please share :)

Tl;dr: I'm a first-year CS student who enjoys programming but hates math

-----

Edit: Wow, thanks for all the responses and advice! I'll take a look at the resources that some of y'all have recommended and will get to answering DMs - thanks again for the kind words and help. MATH 137 is still tough, but I think 135 is growing on me a little after I tried thinking about the logic and how it's similar to the logic aspects I like about programming. Maybe I'm just particularly allergic to calculus though lol :)

OSAP/TUITION ADJUSTMENTS?

Hi guys. I am a first year student in the CS program. I started this semester off with 2.5 credits. To be honest it has been quite overwhelming for me and for that reason I decided to drop to 1.5 courses, so that I may retain my full-time status under OSAP. I plan to acquire the 1.0 credits during the Spring semester 2021.

My main concern is how dropping 2 of my 5 classes from this semester (fall) will affect my OSAP for the Winter 2021 semester. I dropped one a while ago, which has since been refunded to my LORIS. The other one I actually dropped today, as it was the last day to drop a course with only a 10% penalty. Starting tomorrow it is a 55% penalty. I'm a bit worried that it hasn't appeared on my LORIS balance yet, because the other course I dropped showed up within a couple hours. Is there a reason this one is taking longer to appear?

More importantly, is OSAP gonna screw me over with funding for next semester (winter) because I now technically have been overpaid? is it better to request a refund and send the money straight to the NSLSC before the next semester? Or should I keep it in my LORIS balance as I will be using that money for next semester's costs regardless. Thanks for all the help.
