College Students on Break

Welcome to FROSH

For Newcomers


About Our Frosh Week

Frosh Week is the kickstart event of the year, run by the Engineering Students Society to welcome you, incoming first years, to our community. It's the perfect opportunity to get to know your classmates, meet some upper-year students and enjoy university life before the grind begins. 

This year, we're thrilled to invite you to a variety of online and in-person events. We've partnered with some great companies and clubs to allow you to (safely) kick-off campus life in Calgary or to enable you to join in from wherever you might be spending this fall semester! 

Join our ESS discord to stay connected about any updates:
