Grad Visit Day is an annual event hosted by the Faculty of Mathematics and the Cheriton School of Computer Science to help future graduate students make an informed decision about their graduate studies.
Future graduate students who attend this event, have the opportunity to connect with professors and/or supervisors, network with current graduate students, meet other future graduate students and see the campus.
Travel and accommodations are funded by the University of Waterloo.
