Happy October Everyone!
ESSA is excited to announce the next challenge of the 2017-2018 EXCI GAMES!!!
This WEEK LONG challenge will not only test your photography skills, but it will also determine how much spirit your year has in our school, program and sports in general.
October is breast cancer awareness month and throughout Canada there are many efforts that go into fundraising to try and find a cure for this disease. Last year, ESSA went pink at the end of the month and held a bake sale to raise money for the foundation and it was a success. This year we plan on holding the same event however, the entire week will consist of different challenges. On Thursday, Oct 26th, we will once again hold a bake sale where all the proceeds will go to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
Now for the moment you’ve all been waiting for… the challenge announcement!!!
From October 23 – 26, we will hold the first ever Exercise Science Spirit Week!
Starting Monday, each day will hold a specific challenge. Your task is simple, to complete each challenge all you have to do is take a picture with your friends and post it on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) using the hashtag #excispiritweek
Here are the events for the week:
Monday Oct 23rd– ConU Spirit → Come to school in any Concordia University clothing, whether it’s full out Concordia apparel, Stingers swag or exercise science wear.
Tuesday Oct 24th – Sports day → Anything goes! Wear your favourite team’s swag! No matter the sport, the team or the athlete, feel free to show your colours to where your heart truly lies
Wednesday Oct 25th – On Wednesdays we wear PINK → In preparation for Thursday’s bake sale benefiting the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, come dressed in pink to raise awareness.
Thursday Oct 26th – Bake Sale → Benefiting the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Come by SP (near security) and buy some of our delicious homemade food. There will also be some pink items for sale, so come check it out! All proceeds will go to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favour!
*If you would like to volunteer to bake for the bake sale please e-mail email@example.com
We have a new initiative we are bringing to you this year to encourage inter-year collaborations along with a competitive spark to our events. We present to you EXCI GAMES!
What is it?
EXCI GAMES is a cross year competition where throughout the year you are going to accumulate points for various activities (such as group photos, trivia, attendance at events, etc). By the end of the semester, one year will be the WINNER! While you compete amongst each other, each year (regardless of your specialization) will work together to help score as many points as possible.
What is the prize?
We are still in the process of finding the best prize for all of you, but it will be great!
When do we know who won?
While ESSA will be posting updates on the score totals, the FINAL ANNOUNCEMENT will be made at the EXCI FORMAL in the spring so make sure you come out to claim the prize!
What is the point?
While a friendly competition is the main goal, ESSA has been moving toward inclusion and cohesiveness for all specializations and years. We would like to see this bring our students even closer together, and it also gives you more motivation to participate in ongoing events.
Will there be special events?
We do have budget for new events like trivia night, exci games day, etc. and we will try our best to make them happen
