The University of Waterloo Optometry Student Society (UWOSS) is a student-run organization that represents the opinion and interests of the Optometry student body. UWOSS serves as a liaison between the Optometry students and main campus organizations such as Waterloo Undergraduate Student Association, and faculty members within the school. Each student at the School of Optometry is automatically a member of UWOSS, so we encourage you to participate in as many ways as possible. There are many committee positions within UWOSS that represent each class year as the Class Executive, each with different responsibilities (see “Get Involved”). UWOSS sponsors a number of social events: a Slo-pitch tournament, the “EyeScream” Halloween Party, the “EyeBall” Optometry Formal, the legendary Optometry “Corneal Cup” hockey tournament, “Optomspiel” curling tournament, “Sands of Sahara” beach volleyball tournament, and Optometry’s Skit Night. We hope that our UWOSS events will encourage fun and excitement throughout the school year, giving our optom family opportunities to relieve their studying blues! There are a number of ways for you to get involved, so we encourage your participation!
Please feel free to approach any of our executive if you have any questions, comments or suggestions, or if you are interested in getting involved with UWOSS. We look forward to representing UWOSS and are ready for a stellar year!
