Frosh Leader Tryouts!

February 4th, 2014

It’s that time of the year again, tryouts to be a frosh leader are happening!

 

On the week before another school year starts, we hold Frosh Week for students entering their first year at Ryerson Engineering. Like every year, we never fail to always blow whatever the rest of campus has to offer during this time out of the water. Of course, what good is an awesome frosh week without awesome frosh leaders? This is where you come in! This Thursday, 6th February at 6:00PM (KHS 335), we will be holding an information session on how to become a leader. This includes how the process works, what happens after you get accepted as a leader, what will happening during frosh week, and an opportunity to apply.

 

The application form can be found here, and the Facebook event page for the information session can be found here. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask by emailing frosh@ress.ca.

 

Hope to see you there!
