How’s it Goin’ @ UW for You? An Event for New Faculty

Starting a new position can be daunting and sometimes even a little lonely. Wouldn’t it be nice to meet and talk to others who are also adjusting to a new life in Waterloo? You could ask them questions like “Where’s the best place to get good Thai food?” or “How did you find the Math and Computing building?” To this end, the Faculty Association would like to invite new faculty to come and share your experiences and travails with each other over refreshments on February 3rd.

Even if you are not that new (or don’t feel new anymore), please come to welcome the newest members of our community. Come enjoy the company. Come to meet new colleagues. Come to eat, drink, and compare notes. Members of the Faculty Association Board of Directors will also be present to answer questions such as “What does AF&T stand for?”

When and where

This will be a double-dip event on Wednesday, February 3 that includes an alcohol-free coffee break in the afternoon, and an alcohol-friendly Happy Hour at the Grad House.

1:30 pm – Coffee BreakLight snacks & beverages will be served in DC1301 beginning at 1:30 pm and ending at about 3:00 pm.

4:30 pm – Happy Hour
Nachos and other pub foods will be provided on the second floor of the Grad House beginning at 4:30 pm and ending at about 6:00 pm. (The Grad House also has a good selection of beer available for purchase – and pop and juice, if that’s more your thing).

We all know how busy everyone’s schedule is, so feel free to come late and leave early.


Please RSVP here if possible so that we can determine how much food to arrange.

How to find the events

DC1301 is the glass-walled “fishbowl” lounge just off the main lobby of the Davis Centre.

The Grad House is located at the south end of campus, on the hill between the Dana Porter Library and South Campus Hall.
