Stamp? Yes!

EngBowl is the first CSES event after EngFrosh. It consists of a chill day of group sports activities. Bring your own sports equipment/balls and hang out at Brewer Park. First years, come on out and say hi to your old Heads and meet 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

Stamp? Yes!

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 and this ticket reserves your spot in the “engineering section” so make sure to get all swagged out in C-Eng merch.

Yuk Yuk's 1 & 2

Stamp? Yes!

You need at least one good laugh per semester, right? That’s why we make sure to have one C-Eng comedy night per semester. Located in the heart of Centertown, Yuk Yuk’s comedy club is generous enough to offer us discounted tickets for all of the engineers. So, if midterms got you down and you just need a night to relax, then this is the event for you! Tickets can be purchased in CSES for only $7.

C-Eng Does Panda Game

Stamp? Yes!

Another football game, 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 (and Carleton has won the last three years! #threepeat)

EngFrosh Reunion

Stamp? Yes!

After EngFrosh has been over for a few months... it's high time for a reunion! For the past few years, we have gone to see an Ottawa 67’s hockey game at TD Place, where you get to sit and social with your old team while you cheer for another. Make sure to wear as much swag as possible and cheer as loudly as possible to show the hockey community what engineers are all about. Depending on the time of the game, we always do either a pre- or a post-skate on the big TD Place ice rink for anyone who is coming to the game that is interested in skating (tickets, as usual, are sold in the CSES office.)

C-Eng Trivia League

Stamp? Yes!

Typically held in Carleton University’s student bar, Ollie's, CSES reserves the entire back section of the pub for C-Eng’s very own Trivia League. We also hire a professional from the Ottawa Trivia League to come in and administer the event. Generally, 2-3 Trivia Nights are organized per semester. This event is completely free to enter and prizes are awarded to the winner. You can choose to sign up as an individual or with a team via a sign up sheet that will be posted in the CSES office.

Whirlwind: The C-Eng Semi Formal

Stamp? Yes!

Whirlwind is CSES’s annual “themed” semi-formal dance held at Sala San Marco (in Little Italy) at the beginning of November. The night’s agenda usually consists of the following: dancing that officially starts at 7 PM, snacks/appetizer platters served around 10:30 PM, more dancing, and then 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 on the Facebook page shortly after the event!) While this is an engineering dance, like the majority of our other events, everyone is welcome. Tickets may be purchased in the CSES office for $20 each, but hurry: they tend to sell out very quickly!

Charity LAN I & II

Stamp? Yes!

Taking place once a semester, Charity LAN is a 24-hour gaming event with the purpose of raising money for a chosen charity (the charity changes every year.) Players can participate in different tournaments such as Magic the Gathering, video games (Smash Bros, Rocket League, etc.) and board games. Prizes are awarded to winners, as well as tons of snacks for everyone throughout the 24-hour period. Players must bring their own laptop/computers and extension cords. Tickets will be sold in the CSES office for both tournaments and general admission.

Volunteer Appreciation Party (VAP)

Stamp? Yes!

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 volunteer position. Therefore, once per semester, CSES and Leo’s Lounge collaborate to offer volunteers a fun night of karaoke and vouchers for food and/or drinks at the designated bar/pub. Of course, everyone is welcome to join the party, but only volunteers will receive vouchers.

C-Eng Does Capital Hoops

Stamp? Yes!

Similarly to the Panda Game, this is a Carleton-wide event for which CSES facilitates ticket purchasing through our office (ME 3390.) Capital Hoops Classics is an annual basketball game between Ottawa’s rival universities, Carleton and uOttawa. The event takes place at the Canadian Tire Center in Kanata and transportation is provided by the university. (Naturally, we win every year. #CUproud)

C-Eng Does Snowmania

Stamp? Yes!

This is a new initiative that was introduced to CSES members in the Winter term of 2017. The event is organized by Alterna Savings Crackup Comedy and brings people together to raise awareness and funds in support of mental health while also giving participants the chance to be part of the Guinness World Record Book for building the most snowmen in one hour. It is a great opportunity for Carleton Engineering students to show the greater Ottawa region that we are heavily involved in the community.

V-Day Pub

Stamp? Yes!

Who doesn't love free flowers, right? On Valentine's Day, we hit up Ollie's Pub & Patio (the campus bar) to hang out, chat, and hand out roses to the beautiful ladies of Carleton Engineering. Be sure to pop by: we will be your valentine EVERY year, C-Eng!

Reflections: The Engineering Formal & Awards Gala

Stamp? Yes!

By far the biggest social event of the year. Think of it as an engineering prom... but it’s definitely not just for graduating students! Reflections is a formal dinner and dance event, usually wrapping up the end of National Engineering Week. 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 meal 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.

The goal of the Carleton Student Engineering Society (CSES) is to provide our members (undergraduate engineering students of Carleton) with academic, professional, and social resources to help them make the most of their four (or more) years at Carleton.
