Frosh Week 2009

Frosh is a great time of the year to meet new people and find out what’s happening in the ECA.
If you are looking to get involved this year, you should definitely come out since executives for societies, reps, and older students will be there.

I have listed all of the events for ECA Frosh. The links direct to the ECA Frosh website or the Facebook page for that event where more details can be found.

New students are introduced to the ECA executive team, the Dean of Engineering, each department’s Chair, and their department representatives.

Too Soon To Think

This is the first Summer where I’ve been working full-time. These months sure have drifted away. It’s almost time to start thinking again…

  • For those of us in coop, work term reports are due August 12th.
  • There is a Frosh meeting this Friday at 6:30pm in the B-annex. You can contact Athena (VP External) at external@ecaconcordia.ca for more information.
  • If you are interested in volunteering during Frosh, contact Christine (VP Sports and Competitions) at sports@ecaconcordia.ca

Although the prospect of September and classes makes me a sadling, Frosh brightens my day. I’ll post up a list of Frosh events as soon as activities and dates are finalized. It’s going to be great. :)
