Athens, OH 22 April 2018 –
This past weekend, IEEE and HKN (Eta Kappa Nu) held a social event for the entire School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. This event welcomed all students and faculty to get together for a cookout.
In my five years, I was never aware of an event like this that took place for the whole department. It was a great experience to get to talk to professors outside of class and get to know them on a more personal level. Since all years of students were there, we also talked about the different classes people were taking. It was cool to see upperclassmen give advice on certain courses and talk to them about topics that they have already been through.
Attendance at the event was good with about ten faculty members and sixty students participating. The weather was great, and the burgers were even better! I hope they continue to hold this event in this future because it really brings the students and faculty closer together.
