Junior Council is a committee under the EUS, consisting of twenty first year engineering students and two second year Co-Presidents. Its goal is to unite first-year engineering students through both social and academic events. Junior Council also provides a link between new students and the engineering community, and promotes other opportunities for first years.

Main Events

Back To School Apartment Crawl

This apartment crawl is hosted on the first weekend after school starts in September, and allows new engineering students to get to know each other and encourage them to apply to JC, all while having a super fun time!

Ice Cream Social

Free Frostbite ice cream is given out in the Engineering Common Room to introduce first year students to the members of JC and get to know what JC does.

Therapy Dogs

At the end of each semester, JC hosts a chill event where we have tea, snacks, and most importantly, therapy dogs! This event is meant to help students destress before exams start and is always a wholesome time.

Networking Conference

First year students often have a tough time learning to network and start pursuing a career. That's why every year, JC hosts a networking conference with talks from alumni, industry professionals, and experts from the Engineering Career Centre.
