This club aims to discuss issues and propose well thought-out solutions in Modern Politics and conduct research into current and historic consequences of policies. Unlike most political clubs we like to form a community of intellectuals that engage in conflict with personal world views by discussion and learning. As intellectuals we heavily base our arguments and proposed solutions on academic research rather than blatant opinions. We are Waterloo students that enjoy critical thinking and we belong to a variety of majors at University of Waterloo. The club members are heavily invested in Philosophical thinking and often propose solutions to modern politics via rational thinking.

Campus Association for Baha'i Studies (CABS) is the UWaterloo club associated with the Baha'i Faith, a religion founded by Baha'u'llah whose central purpose is to establish the oneness of humanity.

The purpose of CABS is to gather friends of all backgrounds to deepen on the teachings of God and the history and philosophy of the Baha'i Faith; as university students, to learn how to be of service to humanity in all the different aspects of our lives.

Examples of events we hold are devotionals and study sessions. Devotional gatherings consist of reading prayers and passages from religious texts in an informal and reverent atmosphere followed by thoughtful discussion. Study sessions are more structured spaces to explore the Baha'i perspective on varying subjects. They involve research, lively consultation and an open mind in order to redefine our understanding of our material and spiritual realities.

Christians on Campus (CoC) are believers in Christ. Thus, we love the Lord Jesus Christ and endeavor to give Him "the first place in all things" (Col. 1:18). Whether meeting one-on-one or in small groups, our desire is to cooperate with Him for the accomplishment of God's eternal purpose (Eph. 3:11) by ministering the unsearchable riches of Christ (Eph. 3:8) for the building up of the Body of Christ (Eph. 4:12). We warmly receive all believers in Christ, and people who want to learn about Christ and we seek to maintain the oneness of the Spirit by keeping our focus on Christ. He is so rich! He is so full! He is everything to us, and He is the center of our enjoyment. Christians on Campus is a registered Federation of Students club at the University of Waterloo. We hold the faith that is common to all believers. Through daily prayer, Bible reading, and Christian fellowship we are growing "in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" (2 Pet. 3:18). To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen. For further information, including our weekly gatherings such as our Bible study, please contact us or visit our website.

The Hindu Students' Council (HSC) is an international forum that provides opportunities to learn about Hindu heritage through various activities, events and projects. HSC presents ample opportunities for self-development at the spiritual and professional level.

Our main goal is to provide a forum with which Hindus, on and off campus, can celebrate being Hindu and Hinduism through a variety of religious and cultural events. We work to provide these basic services to the University of Waterloo so that the Hindu community at UWaterloo, and those interested in Hinduism, may have the opportunity to take part and experience the rich and vibrant Hindu culture.

But don’t be intimidated. Just because you’re not Hindu doesn’t mean that you can’t join HSC and take advantage of all the services and events that we offer. One of the main goals of the Hindu Students’ Council is to provide a forum for those who aren’t Hindu, giving them an opportunity to experience the culture, the food, and the teachings in a social environment. We always love seeing new faces and hearing different viewpoints and similarities with various ethnic groups. Everyone is welcome from all walks of life!

We are of the conviction that the legacy and spirituality of Karol Wojtyla (Pope John Paul II) represents a strong moral and spiritual compass to guide and enhance the life goals of similarly minded young adults. The late pope’s unprecedented special relationship to young people in virtually every country of the world has inspired devotion in millions who, in turn, continue to instruct the next generation in his teachings. He is recognized as an agent of convicted and compassionate political transformation, and his teaching is a beacon of hope for forming loving, life-giving societies that celebrate what is truly good in all the world’s cultures. His three visits to Canada have left long-lasting impressions upon hundreds of thousands of Canadian young people, and the events and speeches from those visits continue to inspire. We are of the opinion that the body of literature and teaching that emanate from this great saint warrant special intention, and that his admirers merely need a structure in which to join others of like mind.
