Engineering Frosh Week is a fun-filled week designed to introduce incoming Applied Science students to the "renowned spirit and unrivalled excellence" that Queen's engineering is known for. Throughout the week, first year students are introduced to the Queen's campus, the Faculty of Applied Science, the Engineering Society, and the surrounding Kingston community in order to better prepare them for the years ahead. Skills and traditions are taught by the devoted Orientation Leaders (FRECs, i.e. Frosh Regulation Enforcement Committee) and the organizing committee (FREC Committee) through a variety of activities that test the endurance, teamwork, and enthusiasm of the incoming class. Eng Frosh Week is truly the most fun-filled week on campus and certainly not one you will want to miss!
Events such as Highland Games, Thundermugs, and the coveted Grease Pole are planned throughout the year and are entirely student organized. While all events are optional, we strongly suggest all Frosh attend and see what they are all about! Even if you choose not to participate, please come and watch so you can meet some great people. Each student will have exposure to a devoted group of FRECs, the EngSoc Executive, the Alma-Mater Society, Faculty, and the administration throughout the week. First year students take what they learn during Frosh week and apply it to the many diverse situations they will encounter in their post-secondary career.
