To whom it may concern,

We have a challenge for you.
Over recent years, the Carleton Student Engineering Society (CSES) and Carleton EngFrosh have improved our partnerships and relations with the
Carleton University Students’ Association (CUSA).
In the engineering community, especially between other schools and engineering societies, it is common tradition to issue “challenges” to each other in the
way of written notice like this one. They are done typically via invitation and as a gesture of comradery in the spirit of team building. In light of that, we have
a small challenge for you, CUSA. This is our way of putting our hand up for a giant high-five, only cooler.
Also in the engineering community, it is a becoming of age to dye yourself purple as a tribute to your profession and sign of pride for your Faculty (in case
you haven’t noticed by now, purple is kind of our colour). There are a few reasons and stories as to why. Rumour has it that when the famous Titanic ship
sank, the purple-clad Marine Engineers remained on board to delay the ship's sinking. Much like the Iron Ring, purpling is done out of respect for those that
gave their lives because of our profession and as a reminder of the responsibility all engineers share. Purple is also the colour of the Engineering Corp. in
the British military. Lastly, the colour purple has long symbolized royalty, honour, bravery, loyalty, ambition, and innovation. We go purple for big events on
campus, such as Frosh week and Homecoming. It’s not just us, though—other schools do the same (shout-out to our violet friends at Queens, McMaster, U
of T, Windsor, uOttawa, Waterloo, Ryerson— to name a few—and many others around Canada).
So, what’s the challenge?
We in C-Eng are proud to have two of our own engineering students on CUSA’s Executive Team this year: Alex Noguera (Biomedical) and Zameer
Masjedee (Computer Systems). Alex, you’re more than welcome to participate in our challenge if you so please, as you too are a member of our C-Eng
family-- but this letter will be addressed to Zameer.
Zameer, you’ve done EngFrosh with us, and were a facil last year. Some of our frosh, are your frosh. Our lack of sleep, was also your lack of sleep. But
one element was missing from your full EngFrosh volunteer experience last year: you weren’t purple! So, now’s the time. We’ve heard you say you want to
do it at least once. We know you’ll be at frosh week and move-in weekend. Now is as good of a time as there will ever be (trust us).
Please take this notice as an official challenge. We’ll provide the purple. We’ll provide some tips & tricks. We’ll provide you some hand gloves to protect
your stuff for the rest of your week. Here’s what C-Eng would love for you to do with us this Fall Orientation Week 2016 to fortify the CUSA & C-Eng bond:

Join us briefly on the eve of Friday, September 2nd to become engulfed in our favourite colour.
Wear it with pride for as much of the week as you hygienically can!
At EngFrosh Opening Ceremonies, announce your love for the Carleton Engineering community and the glorrrrrious colour purple. (We had
to throw this one in there… don’t worry, the people will love it.)
Use our #CUSAGoesPurpleChallenge hashtag, so our students can track your response

We know you won’t disappoint us, Zameer and CUSA. We look forward to seeing you, and please get in touch with any of us for the details and logistics, or
if you have any questions—we are more than happy to chat.
Yours truly,
