Acadia 3, Waterloo 2
The hockey Warriors made it to the national championship game last
night at Maple Leaf Gardens, but fell just short. It was an exciting
game, with the excitement for UW fans concentrated in the last five
minutes as the Warriors came back from a 3-0 deficit to score two
quick goals. "A few more minutes and we probably could have tied it,
but it didn't happen," says the tired voice of someone
who was there.
Acadia University's Axemen
go home to Wolfville as national champions, a title they also
claimed in 1993. They advanced to yesterday's final by beating
Trois-Rivieres 4-3 on Saturday afternoon.
Also on Saturday, the Warriors defeated Calgary 5-2 to make it to
the championship game. Waterloo took a 3-0 lead in that game before
Calgary battled back to make it 3-2, but two more UW goals put it
Before the weekend tournament, Warrior captain John Wynne was named
winner of the Sullivan Trophy for the most outstanding player in
Canadian Interuniversity Athletic Union hockey this year.
In time for preregistration
Undergraduate calendars for 1996-97 are ready, and were sent to
department offices at the end of last week, says Bonnie Bender in
the registrar's office. Students can pick up calendars starting
this Wednesday, and preregistration for the fall term starts next
More news from that quarter:
The following measures allow us to control the inventory of the Calendars
more effectively, make them more widely available to the general public and
recover some costs.
1. Undergraduate Calendars will be distributed to full- and part-time
students from the Registrar's Office. Each undergraduate student can
obtain one free Calendar in the period March 1996 to March 1997. The free
transaction will be recorded and the student will be instructed to retain
the Calendar for the entire year. If a student who has been issued a
Calendar requires another copy during this period, she / he will have to
purchase it from the UW Bookstore.
2. The UW Bookstore will stock an inventory of Calendars and will sell
them to students who need a replacement copy and the general public at a
retail price of $7.00 + GST (as well as postage and handling where
3. Departments / Colleges will continue to receive a supply of
Calendars free of charge for internal use by faculty advisors and staff.
Students should not be given Calendars from this supply but directed to the
Registrar's Office, Needles Hall for a free copy.
4. High schools, institutions and other individuals who have received
free Calendars in the past will continue to receive them. Those receiving
free Calendars will be instructed how to purchase additional or replacement
Calendars after initial mailings.
5. Free access to the 1996-97 Undergraduate Calendar will be available
on the World Wide Web on March 18 (first day of Preregistration) via UW's
home page: http://www.uwaterloo.ca/home.html.
Thousands will visit tomorrow
It might be decent weather, for once, to make life easier for Campus
Day visitors. Close on 4,000 high schoolers and their parents are
expected to be here for department tours, talks about financial aid,
special events and a peek at residence life. Expect crowds in the
cafeterias, and congested parking (leave the car at home if you can).
"As part of Campus Day," says Michele Grondin in the food services
main office, "all customers will receive a free fountain pop or
fountain juice with every purchase over $3."
Phelim Boyle of UW's school of accountancy -- he holds the J. Page
R. Wadsworth Chair in Finance and is director of the Centre for
Advanced Studies in Finance -- will talk tonight about the complex,
controversial topic of derivatives. He's giving this year's Faculty
of Arts Lecture, under the title "Barings Bank and Orange County:
Living Dangerously with Derivatives".
The lecture starts at 7:30 in the Humanities Theatre; admission is free.
Says a flyer about the talk: "In the last few years derivatives have
risen from obscurity to notoriety. In a recent article they were
described as lurking in the global economy like alligators in a
swamp. This talk will explain what derivatives are and discuss their
significance. We will also examine the principles on which they are
based and in particular their intellectual origins. The talk will
be given in (simple) English."
Recycling phone books
Maybe I didn't make things clear enough in Friday's Bulletin, so
here's the word about what to do with old telephone books:
- The on-campus UW phone book, which is printed on "fine" paper,
goes into the "coloured paper" recycling bin, cover and all.
- Kitchener-Waterloo and other such phone books, printed on newsprint,
should be piled beside the white-paper recycling box for separate
pickup. (At home, put them in your blue box.)
Briefly, on a busy day
- Plans for the new "northern Ontario ecology garden" will be
presented at 12 noon in the Environmental Studies courtyard. The
garden is to complement the existing Dorney Garden on the north
side of Environmental Studies I.
- It's PALS Week, drawing attention to the
Assistance Links Service operated by the Federation of
Students. PALS can be reached at 884-4860 for "listening, support
and referrals" (or e-mail fedpals@watserv1). Volunteers will
be answering questions at a booth in the Student Life Centre.
- The staff association nominating committee is looking for
representatives to serve on several committees, including the
committee of inquiry on staff grievances, the staff training and
development committee, the joint health and safety committee, and the
president's advisory committee on traffic and parking. Details
are available from the staff association office
on its Web pages, accessible through UWinfo.
Education builds a nation
That's the slogan for a national campaign being organized by the
Canadian Alliance of Student Associations, which includes UW's
of Students. A news conference at 4 this afternoon in the
Student Life Centre will launch the campaign; UW's president
and Waterloo's Member of Parliament are expected to be there.
"The campaign," says Federation president Jane Pak, "will be
based on three key issues: accessibility, quality of education,
and education as a national priority."
