Black Liberated Athletes Coalition
Black Liberated Athletes Coalition (BLAC), is a club made out of specifically Black Athletes. However, we do welcome everyone and encourage anyone who is interested to join us.
At Waterloo, Black athletes feel as if the only space they feel comfortable in is either on the hardwood floor or the football/soccer field. So basically Black Athletes are only comfortable in their area of specialty, which is "sports".
This is why we have created BLAC. BLAC will be a club that will allow Black Athletes to do more than just throw a football, run the track, or dribble a ball. BLAC will be a club that allows Black athletes to get comfortable by doing the uncomfortable.Learn more

Brain Exercise Initiative
The Brain Exercise Initiative is a student run, volunteer based club that uses math, reading and writing as a form of cognitive development for the elderly. It is found that simple math exercises and reading aloud for just 30 minutes a day 5 days a week can have a positive impact on memory for those with Alzheimer's. This is currently being done extensively in Japan. It was discovered by a Japanese neuroscientist, Ryuta Kawashima, and consists of math exercises and reading aloud of short stories. Done for just 30 minutes a day, 5 times a week, improvements in Alzheimer’s patients have been observed. This initiative is based at local retirement homes in our community.Learn more
