Today marks the one year anniversary of The Spirit of WTF.
Over the past year, we’ve made 128 posts about UW school spirit and pranks. We’ve posted about everything from POETS getting ‘turfed’, the first females on campus, to perhaps UW’s most successful protest, to a brothel run out of UWP.
Our more reposted story of the past year was the appearance of a full-size TARDIS on campus. (There are a lot of Doctor Who fans on Tumblr. :) )
We hoped you’ve enjoyed reading The Spirit of WTF so far. This university has a lot of history, and we’ve only just scratched the surface.
Today we’re pleased to announce that The Spirit of WTF is all set up for another year of reporting on the bits of UW that seldom make it into the official histories.
So here’s to another exciting year! Study hard, Play hard, and we’ll see you again soon.
- The Spirit of WTF team
Due to the deluge of midterms and assignments this week, there will be no post.
See you next week.
As some of you readers are aware, today (Feb. 10) was a big day for those of us at The Spirit of WTF (and those graduating from Engineering). Today was the engineers’ Iron Ring Stag, the day before the graduating engineers receive their personal symbols of success, their iron rings, at the Iron Ring Ceremony.
It is customary that the day before this ceremony, that members of the graduating engineering classes get together and pull pranks, party, drink, and travel around campus in hordes (often in bright costumes).
As a result of this huge swell in pranks, we will be presenting IRS pranks that the engineers pulled today all throughout the next week.
While we at the Spirit of WTF tried to record all of the pranks that occurred in the early hours of today, we may have missed some things. In the hub-bub of all that was going on, we may have mixed up the details. We may have not recorded everything before Plant Ops woke up. So if you have any stories, pictures, or corrections that you’d like to submit about your experiences during this crazy night, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. (We won’t publish your names if you don’t want us to) Alternatively, you can submit your own post to the blog.
So here’s to the graduating engineers. All those years of crazy work loads are about to pay off. We wish you the very best tomorrow, and I’m sure you’ll all have fun fondling The Tool. :)

Due to the dual issues of exams and holidays, The Spirit of WTF will not be posting anything for the next 2 weeks. See you in the New Year!
Back in the early days of this blog, we made a post about UW making its very own Lipdub video. With the final aspects being worked out, the date has been set: October 1.
The group has made a facebook event so that you can RSVP for the event. It will be an excellent show of Waterloo’s spirit.
This is your chance to get dressed up in ridiculous outfits, build crazy stuff, or showcase your unique skill/hobby.
We’ll be there joining in, so be sure to swing by and say hi! The day should be awesome.
See you there,
[UPDATE: The route and track list are posted:
Due to assignments, there will be no post today. Look forward to new posts next week.
