The Night Life is Seriously Awesome

Post-secondary life has options from pubs at both the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier to local landmarks and bars, there's no shortage of places to eat, drink, and hang out with friends. Wilfrid Laurier's campus pub, Wilf's, is a happening place with open-mic nights, live concerts and shows, and excellent eats. Not far off-campus is the dirty, down-to-earth fun of Phil's Grandson's Place, which boasts alternative music fans, hipsters, and the cheapest drinks in town.  If you want a more sedate and intellectual atmosphere, the Duke of Wellington British pub in Uptown Waterloo is a great choice for a quiet dinner or drink and conversation.

From Jazz to Oktoberfest

Waterloo can claim co-ownership of the second largest Oktoberfest Festival in the world.  Each Thanksgiving, this Bavarian festival turns everyone a bit German with a taste for beer and sausage. Apart from Oktoberfest, Waterloo also hosts an annual Jazz Festival and a Busker Carnival in the summer. In the fall, the Royal Medieval Faire is a prelude to the Wonders of Winter Festival of Lights that happens during the winter.

Global Think Tanks and Technology Companies

Apart from having two world class universities in the city, there are also two Global Think Tanks and a Technology Park that add a level of education and creativity that cannot be found elsewhere. Take advantage of the opportunities to attend events and lectures at The Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics or the Centre for International Governance Innovation. The Waterloo Technology Park is home to tenants including Open Text Corporation, the National Research Council, CISCO, Tribe HR, and Aspire to name a few.
