Blogging in Waterloo…
Well…I’ve just been exposed to my first ‘officially’ sanctioned University of Waterloo weblog. Four airbrushed poster-students chosen from over 15000 in Waterloo have been chosen to let you – the public know just what it’s like to study in Waterloo. Let’s consider Josh. Josh is in CompE and is currently working in Qualcomm. When he’s not working, Josh hangs out at surfer bars, retaurants, patios and more in sunny San Diego! Fork out money (15% tutition increase/term mandatory) every year and this could be you in Waterloo!
Yeah. Right. I mean, I understand that the university has to put up a good image, but this is a bit over the top. Only a lucky few get jobs like this. The majority get jobs in normal companies and live normal lives. They don’t hang out in ‘ultra cool’ places and they certainly aren’t airbrushed. Oh well, what did one except. At any rate – don’t expect anything from these blogs except cheerfullness and delight at the state of the world and love of Waterloo. Would that were real life.
