Happy First Snow Friends!

Winter is coming apparently, so I hope you all are wearing your toques and mittens to stay warm. On that note, we have lots of fun winter themed events coming up that you can look forward to!

The start of the weekend will be Tal-Eng this Friday, where you can come out and either perform or watch your fellow engineers show off their talents. There will also be a special show from the newly elected executive (stay tuned to council tonight for the results). Tal-Eng has been a tradition in engineering for a long time, and you can read more about our other traditions on the EngSoc website (EngSoc.uwaterloo.ca). The Tool will be present, with the bearers contributing as the guest judges for the performances.

Next, Saturday kicks off the holiday season with the region’s Santa Claus parade, which EngSoc will be participating in. Come join us and walk in the parade dressed in your holiday gear, covvies, and a jacket to spread your holiday cheer! The Tool will also be making a festive appearance, so join in the hype. The next day, join in the volunteering at The MUSEUM and teach some kids how to science! It’s a really fun time, and it really helps to get kids interested in science and engineering. They are the future! Sign up to volunteer beforehand so that we know you’re going to be there.

Then, to start wrapping up the term we have EOT on Nov. 23rd, which is going to be lit! It’s a board game tournament in POETS, but you can also just come out and hang out and meet new friends and watch the tournament happen! The game that we will be competing with is TBA at the moment, come by the orifice and tell the executive your ideas! Then get ready for Holiday Gift Exchange the following Monday. Be sure to sign up beforehand if you’re planning on bringing a gift! There will be a price limit on the gifts, and it’s a fun way to meet new friends and bring holiday cheer to your fellow engineers.

That weekend is also EngPlay, so be sure to buy tickets early and come out to see your fellow engineers put on an excellent production. This term has been FULL of fun events, and if you enjoyed them and want to get more involved, keep your eyes out for the directorship applications that should be coming out soon! It’s a really fun way to make new friends, gain some valuable leadership skills, and positively impact your student society. Feel like there’s an event that’s missing from the list? Suggest your new ideas to the incoming executive, we are always looking for new and fun ways to engage the engineering students.

Happy November everyone!
