CIT Pride Day
CIT Pride Day is a celebration of Carnegie Mellon University engineering students and their activities. The event features a complete buffet, music, lawn games, and even balloon animals! All students who attend receive a t-shirt and College of Engineering swag, have the opportunity to check out featured engineering organization booths and commune with other fellow undergraduate engineers.
As midterms begin to pile up, so does the stress. ESC’s Sweet Relief helps students relax by handing out candy bars and hot chocolate during this busy time.
Let’s Get Stuffed
ESC hosts a Thanksgiving-style feast for engineering students in November, decked with seasonal games, pumpkin decorating, and swag and prize giveaways. Highlights from the menu include turkey, stuffing, mac and cheese, pie, as well as plenty of delicious vegetarian and vegan options.
Engineering Week is a week to highlight the contributions that engineers make to society. ESC hosts a variety of events throughout this week, such as tech talks, trivia night at The Yard, and scavenger hunts. Engineers from all departments of the College of Engineering come together to celebrate the important field.
Food for Thought
Food for Thought gives students during finals week a space to relax, hang out with their fellow engineers, and study for exams. Snacks and an open coffee bar are provided so students can comfortably study and commune during this busy time.
As a final event to College of Engineering seniors, ESC hosts Senior Send-Off, a social event featuring open bars, live music, appetizers, desserts, and raffle drawings. All seniors receive a special gift as well, and have a chance to mingle with their fellow graduating classmates. ESC wishes the best for seniors in their future endeavors and careers.
