2022-2023 COUNCIL

Santiago Aguilar


Hey everyone! My name is Santiago Aguilar and I am a third year mechie with a minor in Mechatronics. In my eyes, MESS has been the ideal place to grow academically, proffesional, and socially alongside other mechanical engineering students. The plan for this year, is not only to keep this going, but too bring it to the next level. More opportunities. More social mixers. More academic help. You do not want to miss out.

Sarah Schieman

VP Events

Hey, I’m Sarah! I’m in my last year of mechanical engineering with a minor in energy and environment. Engg events have enhanced my university experience exponentially so I hope to keep that going with some traditional events as well as events MESS has not done in a while. See you there 🙂

Hey I am Tausif, VP Finance. I make sure MESS doesn't go broke hosting the best events in Engineering. I am from Bangladesh and I hate bland food.

Hey hunnies, Annie here <3 

I'm your VP Comms this year but that's not all you'll see me up to.
