The Spring 2018 term is slowly coming to an end. This is the second-last time you’ll be hearing from me this term and as always, I want to take a moment to remind you that you’re doing great! Study terms can be tough, and I know this one has been one of the hardest I’ve faced. So: keep your head up, because we’ve almost made it!
In bigger and more exciting news, Engineering Day is swiftly approaching on July 13th! With the end of Pride Month here’s a quick update on our fundraiser to get the EngSoc executive team dyed purple. We’ve currently raised $1055 for the Trevor Project at the time this article was written. That means that both myself and Grant Mitchell will be going fully purple on Engineering Day! If you want to support us (and get our VP Academic Benjamin Beelen dyed purple) the next milestone is $1500. You can donate at: https://www.gofundme.com/bsoc-exec-gets-purple.
In upcoming events, we have a very creative month ahead of us! EngPlay is happening on July 6th and 7th in Hagey Hall, and tickets for this event can be purchased in the EngSoc Office (CPH 1327) or online at: https://squareup.com/store/EngSoc-B. This term’s EngPlay is a student written script that takes a modern-day engineering twist on a classic King Arthur tale. Also coming up is Engineers Read Things They Wrote as Kids, which was a huge success last term and highly requested to happen again. Come out to read anything that you wrote as a kid, whether it be a song or a book or some cringe worthy diary entries, all submissions are welcome!
For those of you looking for events that are “licensed” for a little more fun, look no further than Pints and Perler Beads on July 18 or our end of term TIKI-EOT on July 20. Both of these events will be held in POETS, and more information can always be found on our Facebook page!
