Past Events

While the events vary slightly each year due to interest there are always a few mainstays that you should definitely attend.

New Student Lunch: Exactly what it sounds like. ChEGSS organizes a lunch outing for new graduate students at the beginning of every semester. Best of all it's free for the new graduate student.

Restaurant Outings: Students take the evening to experience some fine (and cheap) dining. The choice of restaurant varies all over the culinary globe which have included past visits to Iranian, Japanese, Indian and El Salvadorian restaurants.

Fall/Winter Banquet: Our most popular event, near the end of each semester, staff and students gather together for good food, drinks and entertainment. See who gets drunk and see who wins the trivia contest!

Barbeques: While mainly taking place in the summer, several BBQs are organized throughout the year on the steps outside the Wong and have proven popular for their cheap burgers, hot dogs and drinks.

Ski Trip: Every winter, ChEGSS reserves a chalet on the snowy slopes for a fun filled weekend of skiing and snowboarding.

Summer Softball: Every summer PGSS organizes a co-ed softball league in which ChEGSS always enters a championship caliber team. But don't be intimiated, it's a casual, recreative league where all skill levels are welcome.

Intramural Ball Hockey: Every semester, ChEGSS enters a men's ball hockey team into the McGill intramural ball hockey league. Games are played on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday with five games throughout the semester plus playoff games.

Bowling: Bowling was a huge success last year, and many people participated. It was a great way for everybody to get to know each other. Plus, it’s just fun throwing heavy stuff.
