The Return of Velocity Bootcamp
“As summer makes its exit with its last few days of nice weather, and fall creeps its way in, the change in leaves brings in a new school term at the University of Waterloo.

To our Velocity Residents, the ring of “Bootcamp” in the air brings enthusiasm and anticipation for the start of their experience with Velocity in the following term. To others, non-Velocitizens, bootcamp sounds like the start of a rigorous training camp to build a military force out of students – but this isn’t Military School, this is the Velocity Residence program.”
