Tryouts 1TO3

Do you love McMaster Engineering? Do you love welcome week? Well this is the right place for you. Tryouts are the annual selection process for the Engineering Welcome Week rep team. Applicants can be in any stream, department, or faculty! This also includes BTech, iBioMed and Comp Sci. We encourage everyone and anyone to try out!

If you missed the info sessions, find the PowerPoint here.

Tryouts are going to be from February 8th-10th and all applicants trying out to be a rep must sign up for a time slot on the sign-up sheet in the Junction (2nd floor Hatch). Try and sign up for a time slot on Friday or Saturday!

Below, are some rules to follow for your tryout:

  1. Tryout in groups of 4-6, no more, no less
  2. Arrive in the Junction (2nd floor Hatch building) before your tryout begins!
  3. All tryouts are 15 minutes in length and will include a 5 minute creative portion and 10 minutes of individual interviews. These are strict timelines and your creative component will be cut off after 5 minutes. If you have a video, the allotted 5 minutes includes your setup time. We will have a projector and laptop ready to go. You can bring your own laptop if you wish.
  4. Know where the line is, and don't cross it. If you don't know where the line is ask an old person (graduating Redsuit)
  5. HAVE FUN!

Besides the tryout, you also have to fill out an application by Sunday February 3rd at 11:58pm. To the right you'll find links to the PDF, Word, and online application forms. Please be sure to fill out either the PDF or Word application, print it off and bring it to your tryout. You must also fill out the online form with the same information and submit it before your tryout time.
