On October 29, 2016 Waterloo Engineering students took a trip with a bus in a rather unusual fashion. October 29, marked the 40th University of Waterloo Charity Bus, a longstanding Waterloo Engineering tradition which has happened annually since 1977 with the aim of raising money for charity. This year the goal was to raise money for the Heart and Stroke Foundation collecting sponsors before and during the difficult 6.5km pull which saw 14 brave engineering students pull the bus from the University of Waterloo to downtown Kitchener.

The contingent of Waterloo Engineers get a brief break from pulling the bus as gravity takes over on one of the routes many hills. This year the mild weather was welcomed over the rain, ice and snow of previous years.

Every year, ESSCO hosts four conferences that member schools attend: President’s Meeting (PM), PEO-Student Conference, First Year Integration Conference (FYIC) and Annual General Meeting (AGM).  All of these conferences are filled with workshops, speakers, plenary meetings and social events that will keep you engaged the entire time. Attending conferences also provides you with plenty of opportunities to network, learn about issues and concerns of other schools, discuss issues or concerns from your school and learn about what it means to be an engineer in Ontario. Conferences also provide an excellent opportunity to make some friends from other schools and learn about their schools traditions and ideas.
