45 Signs you are a Waterloo Student

45 Signs you are a Waterloo Student

 

 

1.   If you’re procrastinating on the internet and you’re not on Facebook, Twitter or YouTube, you are probably on omguw.com or reddit.com/r/uwaterloo

2.   Most of the comments on OMGUW either make you sad or angry then you question why you are on the website

3.   You are actually terrified of geese and super annoyed by them. You usually refer to them as the devil’s creation

4.   At one point you’ve wondered why the goose is not the school mascot

5.   You are surprised by how many squirrels you see on campus

6.   You have to find alternate ways to get to class during nesting season due to certain paths being blocked off

7.   Construction seems to never end and you hate it

10. The only time you actually watch football is Black and Gold Day

11. You never know where you are going in the PAS

12. The time you actually want Timmie’s there is always a humongous line (and you wonder why there is such a long line when there are 5 other Tim Horton’s on campus)

13. You then complain about the amount of Tim Horton’s on campus and you wish there were more options

14. On the other hand you are excited for the new science building because that means there will be a Starbucks

16. You also own the Waterloo lanyard

17. You know all the stereotypes about Laurier and think that you are better than Laurier (sorry Laurier)

18. When someone refers to the Battle of Waterloo, you think of some type of sporting event (usually football) between Waterloo and Laurier, not the historical event

19. You are upset by the new touch screen maps in the SLC

20. Being socially awkward is actually a crime (source: https://uwaterloo.ca/police/news/suspicious-person-campus )

26. You know the SLC main floor bathroom is the worst bathroom on campus

27. You know there is a high population of Asians

28. You know the saying: You know you go to Waterloo when the library smells worse than the gym

29. Start-ups are everywhere

30. You understand what someone means when they say that they are in their 3B term
