The C-Eng Passport has a much more comprehensive list of all things going on the C-Eng community (not just those run by CSES), so make sure to pick yours up in the CSES Office! To stay in the loop with all the upcoming CSES events, make sure to check the calendar, join the 3300 Block Discord server, or follow us on our socials!
Sports, Sports, Athletics!
Dinner and Dancing!
Other Fun Stuff!
The first CSES event of the year! After all the mayhem that is EngFrosh, EngBowl is a nice, chill day of relaxation and fun in the park before the weather starts turning. Bring any balls, frisbees, games--or just a chair or blanket--and hang out, making some new friends at Brewer Park! First years, come on out and say hi to your Heads and Facils and meet some other people that are involved within the Carleton Engineering community.
As a side note, it seems to rain every year, so come prepared for the weather.
C-ENG DOES HOMECOMING
This Carleton-wide event is the first home football game of the year and also one of your opportunities to go purple! Purpling usually takes place the morning of the game in the grassy area between the Minto Centre and the Prescott residence building. Tickets are available in the CSES Office for a discounted price. Getting your ticket from us also reserves your spot in the "engineering section" so make sure to get all swagged out in C-Eng merch!
THE PANDA GAME
Another football game, yes, but this isn't your regular, everyday football game! This is an annual Carleton-wide event that takes place at Lansdowne Stadium, where the Carleton Ravens face off against the uOttawa Geegees to see who will take home the Panda Trophy. Tickets can be purchased in the CSES Office if you want to sit in the "engineering section", but regular seating is available through Athletics. This is by far one of Carleton University's biggest events of the year!
CAPITAL HOOPS CLASSIC
The Capital Hoops Classic is an annual basketball game between Carleton and uOttawa. The event takes place at the Canadian Tire Centre in Kanata and transportation is provided by the university. Come on out and show your Carleton pride! Tickets can be bought through the CSES Office.
Naturally, we win every year. #CUproud
WHIRLWIND: THE C-ENG SEMI-FORMAL
Whirlwind is CSES' annual "themed" semi-formal dance held at the beginning of November. The night usually starts with some dancing at 7, then serves snacks and appie platters around 10:30, followed by more dancing, and the event wraps up around 1 AM. Most importantly, don't forget to get a quality picture from the free photo booth! (Pictures will be posted after the event!) While this is an engineering dance, like the majority of our events, everyone is welcome. Tickets may be purchased in the CSES office, but hurry: they tend to sell out quick!
REFLECTIONS: THE C-ENG FORMAL & AWARDS CEREMONY
The biggest social event of the year. Think of it as an engineering prom... but it's not just for graduating students! Reflections is a formal dinner and dance event, usually wrapping up the end of the National Engineering Month. You can splurge on a fancy dinner with friends during the awards ceremony or simply join us for the dance afterwards. Dinner tickets include both metal and dance (at 6 PM) while dance tickets only include the after-party of the evening (after 9 PM). Various awards are presented over dinner to commemorate the dedication of our volunteers, honour our grads, and laugh about the good times of the past year.
Taking place once in each semester, Charity LAN is a 24-hour gaming event with the purpose of raising money for a chosen charity. Players can participate in various tournaments such as Magic the Gathering, assorted video games (Super Smash Bros, Valorant, Rocket League, etc.), and much more! If chill gaming with friends is more your style, there are board games, D&D, and plenty of game systems to be played, too. Prizes are awarded to winners, as well as tons of snacks for everyone throughout the 24-hour period. Make sure to bring your computers and game systems if you have them--the more the merrier! Tickets will be sold in the CSES office for both tournaments and general admission.
The Carleton Engineering Competition (C-Eng-C) is an opportunity to put your ingenuity and communication skills to the test. Sign up with a team of friends to compete in categories like Design, Re-engineering, Communications, Debates, Programming, Consulting, and Innovation. C-Eng-C typically happens later in the fall term and competition winners have the chance to compete at the Ontario Engineering Competition!
VAP: OUR VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION PARTY
Have you volunteered at Leo's or as a CSES director, councillor, or executive this semester? If the answer to that question was yes... good news! We want you to know that we appreciate the time and effort that you have dedicated to your position. Therefore, once per semester, CSES and Leo's Lounge collaborate to offer volunteers a fun night of karaoke and vouchers for food and drinks at a nearby establishment. Of course, everyone is welcome to join the party, but only volunteers will receive vouchers.
