If the small taste of F!rosh Week that we were given at last Sunday's event is remotely similar to the real F!rosh Week, you can expect to be hoarse, possibly covered in shaving cream/other messy substances, hear lots of swearing, sex jokes and group cheers with involve both. There will also be some team building events, we had to build a dome out of newspaper and tape, play human tic tac toe, build a human pyramid, etc.

There will also probably be scavenger hunts with difficult items to find like "a blonde asian" or "a penguin", and maybe "a street sign" or "a tree" (those last two are easy to find, but difficult to bring back to get the points. There were people ripping trees out of the gardens outside Sanford Fleming.) Also, you may be yelling "this group sucks" a lot, while pointing at another group.

Of course, knowing the cheers is imperative, and after 2-5 minutes you will have

"What are we?
Engineers!
What do we drink?
Beer!
Who do we like?
Nurses!
Who do we hate?
Artsies!
Who's in charge?
We don't know!"

and

"We are, we are, we are, we are, we are the Engineers
We can, we can, we can, we can demolish forty beers
Drink rum, drink rum, drink rum, drink rum and come along with us
For we don't give a damn for any damn man who don't give a damn for us!"

completely memorized. Plus, all this happened in an event that is 0.01% of actual F!rosh week. So I'd be ready for way more when the actual event comes around!

As opposed to what?

The University of Toronto has a reputation for being like the city itself: full of people focused on business and study--not so much about fun. In general, Queens and Waterloo have the reputation for being bigger party universities.

The F!rosh activities were good enough for me. In fact, only one of those days was actually put on by engineering. The rest of F!rosh week activities were handled by the residences, in my case, New College. My "house" had something going on every day of the week, although I missed some of it because I was still in class when some of the "fun" started (like the streak through the Quad, which I am glad I missed).

Waterloo being a party university...are you sure you don't mean Western or Laurier?
