The university has a really supportive system on diversity and integration of new students. The academic quality is second to none. It is however tough with the little financial backing I have but there is a supportive network that always helps and supports.
Studying in the University of Waterloo is fantastic. The school clearly has an identity that makes it unique -technology and innovation actors best. The courses available are not entirely what I would like to read for my. Program. But overall I'm happy to be here
The quality of education is really good. Of course there are a fee classes that are boring and bland, but you have to take them. The University itself is really ugly, a lot of classes and buildings are old and need to be renovated. The support for students isn't really great, you really have to fend for yourself.
