Students enjoying the BBQ

Students enjoying the BBQ

 

On a beautiful Friday in April, Pi Tau Sigma and the Department of Mechanical Engineering hosted a Spring BBQ; a revival of Pi Tau Sigma's annual tradition, last held about 10 years ago. Inviting all ME undergraduate students and faculty members, approximately 70 students participated in the afternoon event.

From hotdogs and hamburgers to Dr. Ainane's famous chicken kabobs, there was plenty of food for all who attended. Along with Dr. Ainane, Fitz Walker, the graduate studies student coordinator, manned the grills. "I haven't eaten so much in a long time!" said Diana Oradei, an ME junior, "The hotdogs were so good!"

One of the first warm days of the spring semester, the students mingled and many played soccer and tossed Frisbees. "It was wonderful to relax and enjoy the day," said ME junior Jasmine Whittaker, "It gave me a chance to meet some people in ME that I had never talked to before."

Pi Tau Sigma's current President is Charlie Choe, an active ME senior that wanted to revive the annual spring BBQ. Choe comments, ?I thought to myself --why can't we get this started again? We have dedicated students and a supportive faculty, we can definitely get this tradition started again!"

--Lauren Frye '10, ME Student Reporter
