Want to be a Frosh Leader?
Yes, You Do!
If you thought frosh week was fun as a young'en, you'll enjoy it even
more as a frosh leader. The Math Orientation Committee has begun
recruiting leaders for next September's frosh week. There are several
positions available for potential frosh leaders.
- Leader - Frosh leaders spend the majority of frosh week with
their groups interacting directly with the frosh. They tend to get to
know their groups fairly well.
- IceBreaker - If you think you would like to run specific events
for frosh week, this is the job for you. IceBreakers are attached to a
specific frosh group but they spend most of their time running smaller
activities at Orientation events.
- Tie Guard - In case you've been looking at the ground
consistently for the few years, you've noticed that this faculty has some
affinity for pink ties and likes to put a massive one of these on the side
of the building for frosh week. To prevent the
theft/destruction/vandalizing/tar-and-feathering of the tie, we tend to
have a couple mathies guard the thing. We call these people Tie
- Co-ordinators - Co-ordinators are people that co-ordinate. More
specifically they co-ordinate Orientation events. Even more specifically
than that, they plan specific events and ensure that they run smoothly.
Co-ordinators do their duties in addition to being either leaders or
- Teamsters - Teamsters drive a van around to get stuff from
places to other places.
Applications for these positions are now available outside the MathSoc
office (MC 3038) and can be returned to the same location. Once you've
submitted an application, be sure to sign up for an interview. The
sign-up sheet is currently available on the MathSoc office door.
