Flying into the unknown requires bravery and nerve. Aces are known for their calm under pressure and being the daredevils of the skies. Highly intelligent and agile, Aces know how to anticipate an opponent’s move while ensuring the safety of innocent civilians. You can find an Ace comfortably at home in a hanger with other pilots or in the flight deck solo. Look up in the sky and you’ll see an Ace flying in and out of the clouds, perfectly in sync with teammates as they dance throughout the sky.
The Ace’s outfit is critical to their safety: a gold jumpsuit with aviators or goggles to protect from the glare of the sun; often matched with a bomber jacket and aviator hat to keep warm amongst the windy, bone-chilling skies. Are you ready to soar as a Gold Ace? Discover your pilot within at #LAURIEROWEEK17.
WHY AM I A GOLD ACE?
All first year students, on both campuses, and those living on and off campus, are placed on one of four colour teams. Each team is represented by a colour and a character – we encourage you to embrace it! As part of Orientation Week, you’ll participate in team activities and challenges; it also helps to identify your student volunteer leaders, also known as “Icebreakers.” Whenever you have a question or are heading somewhere, make sure to check in with your Icebreakers.
HOW WILL I KNOW IF I’M A GOLD ACE?
Check out here if you’re on the Waterloo campus and here if you’re on the Brantford campus to see which residence floors are assigned to be a Gold Ace. This will help you when identifying your Icebreakers and fellow team members. This information will also be provided when you come to pick up your O-Week kits on Move-In Day.
