  First Year Representatives  

First Year Representatives vote on behalf of and advocate for first year students through the work of the MES. This involves everything from helping to promote and plan events, to chairing the First Year Committee, and speaking up for first year students needs during policy making. Six first year reps will be elected by the incoming class. One from BTech, one from iBiomed, one from Comp Sci, and three from Eng I. 

How to Run 


In order to run for First Year Rep you must:


  • Fill out the nomination form. 

  • Ensure that all signatures on your nomination form are from first years in your program (if you’re in iBiomed only iBiomed first years should sign your form, etc.).

  • Hand in your nomination form to the CRO mailbox in the DW Lounge (Engineering Lounge on the first floor of Hatch) by 5:00 pm on Thursday September 5th.
