In my time here I’m happy to say that I’ve earned more than a degree, and I’ve learned more than I was taught. And while I didn’t follow the typical path, I’m happy with where I’ve ended up. I’ve had a wonderful and somewhat unusual experience at Waterloo, and I want to share my “secrets.” Hopefully you can take this and use it to get far more out of your education than a degree.
