Environmental Sciences

MARCH 20-21


Saturday March 20th 9AM – 5PM

ESSE is the Environmental Sciences Student Executive, an Official College Government Affiliate and Student Government Affiliation representing students of the Bachelor of Science in Environmental Sciences [B.Sc. (Env.)] degree program at the University of Guelph. We work within the University, the city of Guelph and the academic community to provide resources, social activities and extracurricular learning experiences that enrich academic and professional careers, unify the student body, promote the program and create a sense of community for all students.

This year we’ve moved all of our events online so we can continue to engage with the student body in new and innovative ways! We started first semester off strong with an online scavenger hunt to welcome the incoming first year environmental science students and give them a virtual tour of main campus. Trivia nights proved to be a huge hit as we had environmental science students face off against the aggies for a bit of friendly competition and opened up our executive meeting so general members could try their hand at some enviro sci trivia.

Live Events

From escape rooms to holiday movies nights, we’re making the most of online activities this semester so stop on by to participate in some of our live events and say hello to ESSE Exec. Members!
