Transfers from SYDE to MTE

I'm not seriously considering the transfer just yet, but would Mechatronics be significantly harder than Systems Design?

I've only experienced the first few terms of SYDE, but I think I would much rather learn the course content within MTE. While I have an appreciation for UX, I don't find it engaging. The design/human factors courses are generally boring. Robots and electronics are just more interesting, and with my time in a design team I find myself wishing I was more immersed in those subjects, and wishing I could get co-ops in that area. Should I just stick it out, and grind electronics/mech projects by myself during the next co-op term? Anyone have any experiences to share regarding transfers to and from SYDE?

Thanks.

Math 137 midterm post-mortem (Inside Out 2 version)

hello,

Many of you are probably feeling a little sad. This is ok. Sadness is a normal human emotion. I encourage you to watch the movie Inside Out 2 - one of the best movies of all time.

Try not to take your performance in this course as a barometer by which you should measure yourself. This is true for any course at any time but is especially true for this particular term where both the school and the students are learning to adjust to this new format.There is also the written part to to this midterm which will likely boost everyone's average (if previous Crowdmark assessments are to be believed). As it stands at the moment, the grades so far are not out of line with previous years.Specific to this course is the fact that the second half is generally easier to understand than the first half so hopefully this will give everyone a moral if not quantitative boost. At the end of it all try hard to look at your effort and be proud of the work you put in. University in general requires a big adjustment and unfortunately for everyone starting new this year will likely require a few more adjustments over the coming years. One of the biggest, most important and rarely talked about benefits of university as a whole is just a general growth of the individual regardless of what discipline they ultimately decided to study. A reflection for you.- Math 137

Any family doctors taking patients?

I know its a long shot but is anyone's family doctor taking new patients? Or have you heard of any that are?

I've been on a list for a very long time with no end in sight and am trying to be more proactive in taking care of my health.

Otherwise - does anyone get regular check ups any other way? I am just looking to stay on top of check ups and get things like blood work done as often as I should.

Excessively Long Bus Routes

Am I wrong for thinking this is an insanely long and poorly planned bus route to go from Conestoga to somewhere that’s a 5 minute drive away? The total bus transit time is like 40 minutes -_-

There is another bus I could take, but if I do that route then I’m only on it for 5 minutes and have to walk another 15 minutes after getting off.

I’m really frustrated with public transit lately… I don’t mind walking at all and don’t want to sound entitled, but half my days are being taken up because bussing everywhere takes forever - not to mention that they only come every 30 minutes. This city seems big enough to expand routes and frequency. Please tell me I’m not the only one who feels this way.

Architecture VS Architectural Engineering

I have one day to decide (late admissions offer), and I'm unsure if I want to take Architectural Engineering or Architecture (at the University of Waterloo). I'm wondering if there are any pros and cons to either that I haven't thought of yet, and how the difference in salary looks too (either in Canada or globally). Does anyone know of any graduates who have certain opinions on either? Thanks!

University starts legal process to end coop

At the end of last week, the University of Waterloo issued a legal "get your game up" Notice to members of the coop program in the Math, Engineering, and Science faculties. The Notice required the students to find work immediately or face consequences in accordance with the Co-operative Education Act.

Unfortunately, the employment rate remains low in violation of Waterloo policies, and the law.

Today, lawyers representing the University served court documents to start a legal process to enforce the relevant policies and end the coop program.

The University is seeking an interlocutory injunction to end the program. Subject to the court’s approval, documents related to the legal process will be made available publicly through our legal counsel’s website.

We acknowledge that taking this next step will continue to make some on campus feel uncomfortable. The University will continue to uphold the values contained in Policy 69, including the right to free expression, in line with the principles it has received from the Task Force on Freedom of Expression and Inclusive Engagement.

We have said repeatedly, and as is expressed in the report from the Centre for Career Development, the coop program does not mean people have the right to endlessly apply on shared university space like the WaterloWorks job board. The behaviour of coop members has crossed the line to intimidation and olfactory harassment of recruiters making their ongoing presence untenable.

The University acknowledges that the information in this note may evoke feelings of trauma and harm in individuals. We remind you of the resources and supports available to University community members including the Employee and Family Assistance Program (for employees) and Counselling Services (for students). For people with no affiliation to the University, go fuck yourselves.

Jointly,

Office of the President

Mr. Goose

Carp Fishing In or around KW?

Hello Anglers! I am an amateur angler looking to catch some Carp in or around the KW area (even 30-45mins away is fine). I spotted a carp at the Conestogo River on Friday and have gone back everyday since with no luck of any more appearing. I feel like im shooting in the dark trying to catch these guys and they happen to be my favourite thing to fish from the one that i’ve caught.

Does anyone have any spots or information to offer! Anything is much appreciated!

Thanks!

Looking for a nice biking destination about 50 km from the city

I'm planning on riding into the county this weekend and am hoping for a ~100 km round trip ride, so I am looking for a destination about 50 km out from Waterloo that offers a reasonably safe & smooth ride.

I've rode out to Elmira/Elora/Fergus before so I'm hoping to try another direction this time, maybe towards West.

Best case is a route that maximizes roads with paved shoulders that aren't major routes with a lot of traffic. I can pack my own water and food supplies so I don't necessarily need to reach a proper town as my end point. Open to suggestions!

Hello Anglers! I am a new angler looking to fish some carp around the kitchener waterloo area. Even upwards to 30-45mins away is also acceptable! In my 2 weeks of fishing, carp have been the most fun, however I feel like im shooting in the dark and gambling for the chance to catch one. Does anyone have any spots or general areas where Carp are active or tend to hang out? I don’t even seem to be getting luck by topwater searching for them. I found 1 in the Conestogo River on Friday, have gone back everyday for no luck.

Anyway, if anyone has ANYthing to offer, it will be much appreciated! Im DYING to catch some carp! Thanks everyone!

To all the international students (no hate, genuinely just curious), why always a diploma?

I've met a lot of international students this year, and almost every single one of them seems to be enrolled in either a 1-year, 2-year, or very rarely, a 3-year diploma. Why is that? From what I've seen so far, it's always a random, no-name, gimmicky/niche business courses, or a sidelined course

Why these and not, for example, a solid bachelor's degree? I can't think of a single entity that takes a diploma seriously, especially when you've come right out of high school to do it.

And why are people still enrolling in colleges like Conestoga? It takes two Google searches of the word "Conestoga" to see hundreds of posts complaining about it, hating on it, news outlets bashing it, and Canadians hating on it. Basically, red flags all throughout.

and why work at the expense of your education if you're here for that? i see some people just working all throughout the week and just attending 1 day of class. or working over night Everday just to end up sleeping during the lectures.
