Here Comes November!

Will Wilmot - VP External
Posted on: October 22, 2016

As we approach the last full month of the term… yes, that’s right! School has been flying by that quickly, and I’m sure for some of you that is a good thing and for others, not so much. Here is what’s on tap for the month of November under the VP External Portfolio.

Over the month of November, we are sending a delegation to represent Waterloo ‘A’ at both the Professional Engineers of Ontario – Student Conference in Ottawa hosted by Carleton, and the Conference on Diversity in Engineering in Montreal hosted by McGill. The applications for these conferences are closed and the delegations have been chosen; however, keep your eyes open if you’re still looking to attend a conference. Applications to attend Congress 2017 at the beginning of January will be opening soon. A link to the application should be available on the EngSoc website (https://www.engsoc.uwaterloo.ca) soon as well as on the Facebook page.

Next up, if you were unaware of the food being sold each week for charity on Thursdays for lunch in the CPH foyer, grilled cheese and pancakes are sold on alternating weeks by our lovely charity directors. This will continue each Thursday until the end of term, so stop by and help support Habitat for Humanity.

Education Outreach is an opportunity to give back to the Waterloo community. On November 5th and 20th, we will be sending a group of students to the MUSEUM in Kitchener to help younger children do fun experiments relating to math and science. If you’re interested in helping out, please email vpexternal.a@engsoc.uwaterloo.ca.

The Waterloo Engineering Competition (WEC) will be held this term on Nov 11-12. If you haven’t heard of WEC or would like to know more about it, I encourage you to go onto the Iron Warrior website and read my article from Issue 1 this term – or you can email vpexternal.a@engsoc.uwaterloo.ca or wec.a@engsoc.uwaterloo.ca. Registration and volunteer links will be available very soon if not by the time this is published.

Finally, we have two pictures that lead us into the holiday season. On November 19th, we have the Santa Claus Parade, which there will be a sign up for as the event approaches; and on December 1st, we have pictures in POETS with Santa and the Tool.
