Preceding the formal is the Engineering-Nursing Mixer, where members of each discipline can gather at the Outpost for a night of mingling and good times. This is an informal event and anyone with a ticket (or who pays at the door) can get in on the fun!


The formal is an annual tradition between the engineering and nursing student societies of Lakehead. While the event is hosted by the engineering and nursing student societies, everyone and anyone are welcome (as long as they have a ticket). In case you don’t know, a formal is a night where everyone dresses up in formal attire and enjoys a seated meal, dancing, and festivity. Now that you’ve bonded with your fellow engineers, it’s time to practice those social skills in the real world!
