I started this blog, but then got a little busy and didn’t keep it up. Recently someone actually noticed (I have at least one reader!), so here it goes, the long over due update!
I last left off at the end of July. I spent most of August working at MB Hydro and preparing for the start of class, well actually, planning for EngO and getting the Promotions Directorship for UMES in order and ready to go. That basically sums up August. Now on to September!
We, the engineering students and faculty, took possession of the new Engineering 2 building on September 1 2005. That meant moving into the new UMES offices. At the same time, the EngO committee was finalizing the last details of the orientation to be held the following week for incoming engineering students. Much of the long weekend was spent on these final details!
EngO started bright and early Tuesday, Sept. 6. We showed the frosh a good time with a BBQ lunch, evening of bowling, marching around campus, and finishing the second day with a party and billiards at Triple B’s.
Promotions is now in full force, advertising all the events put on by UMES. We have an average of one poster per week, which is a lot of posters! Plus all the banners on the UMES website and other random graphics jobs here and there.
We had the Grand Opening of the new Engineering 2 on September 23. This was a big media event with Premier Doer and MP Reg Alcock in attendance. The Symonized Engineering Marching Band also had a revival that day. Check out the shots in the Gallery.
The big event for September was WiseGuys101 featuring Men In Kilts, held at WiseGuys on Campus. This took a lot of time to get the posters ready as we lacked photos of the band. But it all worked out in the end and it was a fun night (except for my cold!).
We are now into October and I’ve had to actually start doing some school work. That’s right. I do go to class. Midterms are coming up and I have some assignments due, so this is the end of this post. Thanks for reading. Check back in December for another post!
