University of Waterloo Faculty of Science


University of Waterloo Faculty of Science

The Faculty of Science is one of six faculties at the University of Waterloo, it is home to Canada's only English-language School of Optometry, renowned for its outreach programs and vision research. In 2004-05, Science attracted almost $42.5 million in research funding in areas such as aquatic ecology, solid state chemistry, environmental biology and groundwater contamination clean-up.

The mascot for the faculty of Science is Arriba the Amoeba. Arriba is typically referred to as "she" in the third person, despite the fact actual amoebas are not gendered. Arriba is both the mascot for the faculty itself and the student-run Science Society (Unlike the
Faculty of Math and the Math Society, which have separate mascots.)
