We know Carleton Engineering has no shortage of spirit. So every year we try to channel all that enthusiasm into various charity and awareness campaigns to do some good, and have a bunch of fun doing it!

In 2023, we brought back an old C-Eng tradition from decades ago, the C-Eng Blood Bowl! Compete with your stream society against all others to see who can donate the most blood! Anyone who donates walks away with swanky patches for their flightsuit, and the winning society earns the right to show off the coveted Blood Chalice for the next year until they have to defend it at the following Blood Bowl. For more information, check out the Blood Bowl page by clicking the button below!
Your Blood Bowl Directors for this year are: Caitlin Laplante, Nelly Amechi, and James Dublin
