Good afternoon, Captains! Welcome to Fall!
As you know, last weekend was Family Weekend and one of the events taking place to kick off the weekend was the Luter Open House. Last Friday from 3-5 pm, prospective students, parents, and alumni filled Luter to check out our newest academic building, enjoy refreshments, and see what’s been going on in our beloved PCSE department.
Department Chair Dr. Anton Riedl started the event with a introduction followed by President Trible with his heart-warming welcome speech. Afterwards, several awards were presented to outstanding members of the science and technology community, including one to John Rivers who is the Director of Advanced Concepts – Force Application Center for Innovation at Lockheed Martin.
After the greetings and speeches, guests were free to wander about Luter classrooms where different organizations had set up exhibits and displays to showcase their work.
