3D Prototyping Lab Grand Opening and Open House

Advisors, if you can please announce this event to your students it would be appreciated. You are also invited – everyone is invited. Thanks.

3D Prototyping Lab

Grand Opening, Ribbon Cutting, and Open House

The Engineering Graphics and Design Technology Department, in conjunction with the College of Technology and Computing, is pleased to announce the Grand Opening, Ribbon Cutting and Open House for our new 3D Prototyping Lab in the Computer Science building room CS 611 on Friday (October 2, 2015) at 10:00 a.m.

We will hear from President Matt Holland, Dean Michael Savoie, possibly (still unsure) Governor Herbert, and representatives from Stratasys, the manufacturer and seller of the 3D printers used in the lab. We will display and answer questions about many of the projects we’re engaged in, and be open for questions after an 11:00 ribbon cutting ceremony. Refreshments will be served.

EVERYONE is invited!!! If you are curious about 3D printing, put this on your calendar and come and see it!

Hopefully this will be of assistance as students call and ask questions. Always feel free to refer them to the Graduation Office if they are having any issues or concerns with the application and we will be happy to help.

Just a reminder that in order for a student to graduate they need to go to their Wolverine Track and click on the “Apply to Graduate” link which will take them to the online graduation application. The deadline for Fall 2015 Graduation is October 2nd.

Thanks for all you do!

Admissions Counselor Contact Information

Hello Advisors!

As Admissions Counselors, we want to make you aware of our contact information for anyone needing help with the admissions process this coming year. As you know, the Admissions and Prospective Student Services offices combined this past year. With this came a title change from Recruiters to Admissions Counselors. This also provided us with the ability to work with students through the entire process, from first contact at a high school to being admitted at UVU. The Admissions Office receives thousands of phone calls, emails, and student drop-ins each month, so we’re excited to provide some additional support.

As we begin our high school tour this fall, students and counselors will know us as their point of contact for UVU. If you or your students have questions with the admissions process you are welcome to contact any of us below. While we have specific areas we are responsible for, we are happy to help any student who needs assistance. Also, if you feel there is important department information you would like us to be aware of when speaking to prospective students, don’t hesitate to let us know. Our goal is to provide students interested in UVU with the most up-to-date, important information when making the decision to become a Wolverine.
