OMG UPDATE: Question? Answer.

Updated on Thursday, June 18


QUESTION: Anyone having troubles making friends at UW? Why is it harder here? Stories?


  1. Co-op. People have double the stress due to midterms and interviews so friends are less of a priority. people are always off stream. Hard to keep in touch. etc..

    1. 100% agreed. Too many competing priorities and people in 'unmatched' streams means you'll meet them in 1A and not see them again for a year or more. People form closeknit groups in their program/stream and have shit to do with anyone else. Ugh.

    2. Disagree. Co-op is actually the only place I make friend. Study terms are just too busy to make friend, and there isn't a lot of things to do in Waterloo. In contrast, on work term I usually go to lunch with other co-op students, and go do fun stuff on weekends.

      Although we rarely stay in touch after coming back to UW.

  2. agree with previous comment, people have no life here

  3. INb4 everyone says join a club.
