Gone are the days when Arts students could release their pent up rage against the faculty of engineering in a cutthroat game of dodgeball.
A sort of university war-games that pitted faculty against faculty in competitive dodgeball, Faculty Wars will be replaced this year by an unannounced event.
Faculty Wars was started four years ago by then vice-president student life Matt Diteljan, but has dwindled in popularity since its first year.
Students’ Union vice-president student life Jonah Ardiel said that he’s hoping to shift the event’s focus away from its former competitive structure.
“There’s going to be a large focus on mental health next year,” Ardiel said. “So whatever’s replacing it will be centred around that.”
Although Ardiel is hashing out the specifics, he hopes that art-themed events will replace Faculty Wars. Ardiel said he is looking at setting up an art gallery along with hosting open mic nights to be held once a semester.
