We are asking everyone (students, alumni, faculty, the public) to let us know if you plan to attend. This will give us an idea of how much food to order and help us plan other aspects of the event.

Celebration activities

June 19, 2008

How will we celebrate 40 years as a department? A tentative schedule is posted on the 40th anniversary Web site.

We are planning a keynote address, a panel discussion, and a history slide show for starters. You’ll have the chance to tour our labs and learn about our wonderful student groups.

The College of Engineering Homecoming Tailgate will be held on Saturday and it is always a good time. At the tailgate, you can enjoy fellowship, feast on a pre-game banquet, view student project displays, and meet the Dean of the College of Engineering. Please visit the CSE photo gallery to see pictures of previous tailgates.

We are still taking suggestions, though, so if you have any thoughts on the celebration, please let us know. Also, please add your stories to our online history archive. One thing that we feel is unique about our celebration is that everyone has the opportunity to participate. This is your history!

Whether you were here in 1968 or you are reading this down the hall in one of the 3rd floor labs, you are invited to share your own stories, photos, and insights into this place we have all called home.

We look forward to hearing from you!
