who are we? 

 what is a redsuit? 

The Redsuits are a group of passionate upper-year Engineering, B.Tech, iBioMed, and Computer Science students that volunteer their time and energy to give first year students the best possible introduction to our programs. The team is made up of students with a wide diversity of experiences, identities, and beliefs that are crucial in ensuring first years are welcome in their new home!

The Redsuits are a major component of Welcome Week celebrations from the very beginning. Historically, they work with Reps from every Faculty to move new students into their Rez buildings at the end of August, and teach the first years a couple new cheers along the way! The Reds spend the rest of their week guiding the first years through Welcome Week events, showing them around campus, and just generally being awesome. 

The job of a Redsuit doesn't end with Welcome Week, either. They have a duty to be role models for our students year-round, whether they're wearing their shiny coveralls or not. You can find them chaperoning Pub Nights, monitoring buses, and helping run events like Oksoberfest. Then there's perhaps the most important duty of a Redsuit - handing out DELICIOUS crackers outside first-year midterms and exams! Needless to say, MacEng wouldn't be the same without the Reds on campus.

What is the Orientation Committee and How Can I Join?
The Orientation Committee is a group of experienced upper-year Redsuits who take part in the planning of each year’s Welcome Week. The “Committee” is responsible for the selection of the Redsuit team, and organizes the individual events and initiatives for the brand new group of first year students that join the community each year. Committee is selected each year by the Co-Orientation Coordinators after submitting an application and going through an interview process.

What is a Co-Orientation Coordinator and How Do I Become One?
The Co-Orientation Coordinators (or Co-OCs) are the two fearless leaders of the Redsuit team, as well as the lead planners of each year’s Welcome Week from the Faculty of Engineering. They are responsible for selecting the Orientation Committee and for facilitating the Redsuit tryout process. By working with the Faculty of Engineering, the Student Success Centre, and a variety of other partners on and off campus, the Co-OCs ensure that Welcome Week is a rewarding experience for all involved. To become a Co-OC, pairs of two experienced upper-year Redsuits present a bid for Welcome Week. The Co-OCs are then chosen by members of the faculty.

If you have any questions about the Redsuits, Welcome Week, or the application process, feel free to email coocs@macengsociety.ca!
