Event description
Second-year USask engineering students will be welcomed into their disciplines

About this event

Second-year USask engineering students will be welcomed into their disciplines by alumni, department heads, faculty members, senior students, and industry leaders. The hard hat ceremony features a colorful display of hard hats representing the engineering disciplines. Reception to follow for students to celebrate their newly chosen discipline.

The 2021 Hard Hat Ceremony is a unique celebration as we will be celebrating two cohorts of students - our 2021 second-year students and our 2020 second-year students who did not receive an in-person ceremony because of the pandemic.

Hard Hat Ceremony Timeline:

  • Doors open at 6:30 PM (Hall B, Prairieland Park)
  • Ceremony begins at 7:00 PM
  • Reception to follow the ceremony

The event will be held at Prairieland Park and is open to parents and family of students. Due to COVID-19, we will be following all USask Pandemic guidelines:

  • Single-use masks will be provided for all guests and must be worn at all times during the event
  • Hand sanitizer stations will be located throughout the venue
  • All students and guests are required to RSVP in advance and check-in at the registration table upon entering the Hard Hat Ceremony
  • If guests are feeling sick, unwell and/or presenting COVID-19 symptoms, we ask that they stay home.
  • The bar and dessert reception will be open after the ceremony is complete, this allows students and guests who are not comfortable eating/drinking with large groups the option to participate in the Hard Hat Ceremony while still leaving before dessert is served.
  • All USask COVID-19 guidelines can be found here: https://covid19.usask.ca/

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR STUDENTS:

In previous years, students needed to attend the Hard Hat Ceremony in order to receive their hard hat. Due to the pandemic and the large nature of the event (we anticipate ~600 guests), students who are sick and/or not comfortable with large groups will be able to RSVP to pick up their hard hats at a later date and watch a live-streamed portion of the evening. Students - please note, you will see the option to pick up your hard hats at a later date when you register via EventBrite.
