Students Offering Support, UW

Categories:
  • Academic

Waterloo SOS is a national charitable organization that is currently present in almost all Canadian Universities. Our aim is to support third world countries through student volunteer trips where we send UW students to local communities to help build libraries, schools, etc. To raise funding for these trips, we host exam aid sessions taught by Upper Year students who have successfully completed the course. For each student we tutor, we ask for a generous donation of $20 to support our charitable initiatives. In return, we offer them a 2 hour EXAM-AID tutorial, along with a comprehensive study guide and practice problems to help them succeed on their exam!

For more information, visit our website at www.waterloosos.com or like us on our Students Offering Support Facebook page.

Thaqalayn Muslim Association (TMA)

Categories:
  • Religious and Spiritual

The Thaqalayn Muslim Association was founded in early 2012. The club was formed by a group Shia Ithna Asheri Muslim students in response to a lack of an official support network for the post-secondary Shia Muslim students in the Kitchener-Waterloo region. Although the headquarters of TMA Waterloo's activities is the University of Waterloo's main campus, the TMA aims to be accessible to all post-secondary students in the region. Thus, the TMA Waterloo’s purpose is to cater primarily, although not exclusively, to the needs of the Shia Ithna Asheri Muslim post-secondary students at the University of Waterloo, and the surrounding region, while simultaneously representing their collective voices and pursuing their ideals.

Toastmasters, UW

Categories:
  • Business and Entrepreneurial

Looking to develop speaking and leadership skills? Ace a job interview? Ignite your career?

Toastmasters International (TI) is a world leader in communication and leadership development. UW Toastmasters is a TI chapter that is filled with inquisitive and enthusiastic members. We bond and learn together at weekly meetings (Thursdays 5:25 - 6:40pm), competitions, workshops, and social events.

How Does It Work?

A Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a no-pressure atmosphere. There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another’s presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the program’s success.

Meeting participants also give impromptu talks on assigned topics, conduct meetings and develop skills related to timekeeping, grammar and parliamentary procedure. Members go through a journey of personal and professional development by working through Pathways, an education program designed to develop competencies in communication and leadership.

Guests and visitors are welcome to come to as many meetings as they want before deciding whether to join as formal club members.
