Best Buddies was founded in the United States in 1993 and has expanded worldwide. As a participating school, the University of Waterloo Best Buddies Chapter's goal is to make our community more inclusive and accepting of people with intellectual disabilities.

The club consists of Peer Buddies and Executive members. Peer Buddies are students paired in a one-to-one friendship with an adult who has an intellectual disability (called a Buddy). Peer Buddy and Buddy matches are made for at least one academic year and made based off similar interests between the pair. Executive members consist of a President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Junior Executives.

Peer Buddies and Buddies meet and connect virtually or in-person once a week. At this time, our Chapter holds group events once a month, either in-person or virtually.

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.
