Happy New Year!
United Way Campaign wrap-up
Fulton Engineering answered the call to LIVE UNITED. We nearly reached our target by returning pledge cards, giving time and money, and organizing and attending fundraisers. We played bocce ball, ran a haunted house, dug into our pockets for spare change and ate pizza,
burgers, cookies and cupcakes! Working together, we raised $36,419 in pledges plus $2,500 in special events thanks to the extraordinary efforts of our unit representatives, and your generosity. SSEBE deserves special recognition with 65% participation.
Thank you for all you’ve done to make the 2011 United Way campaign a success. A special thank you to Rick Martorano for serving as our United Way Campaign Chair.
Sharing the excitement of engineering
There are several upcoming opportunities for faculty and students to share their research and the excitement of engineering with the community–and hopefully inspire some future engineers.
- Geeks Night Out on Feb. 16, 5:30-9 p.m., is an event geared toward adults, and part of Mill Avenue District Third Thursdays. Fulton faculty and students can feature hands-on activities, movies and demonstrations in the Brickyard.
- The Night of the Open Door, an event geared toward families, will be held Saturday, March 3, 6-9 p.m. Tyler Mall will come alive with student projects, faculty research and hands-on activities. All Fulton faculty and students are encouraged to participate.
- Our first ever Engineering Open House, March 30-31, will feature student projects, faculty research and corporate showcases-as well as grade school and high school design competitions. Led by the Engineering Student Council, the goal of the event is to showcase the role that engineering plays in everyday life and show the difference that technology makes to our future. The open house is modeled after the highly successful event at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Held annually each year since 1952, their Engineering Open House attracts thousands of people to campus to see engineering projects, research and discoveries from all engineering disciplines.
Register now to participate in one or all of these events or for more details: contact Steve Rippon, firstname.lastname@example.org or 965-3736.
Thank you for all that you do to advance engineering, and best wishes for a fantastic 2012!
