Sept 8th – Over a thousand UVU students showed up for the annual T&C Dean’s Day. Each Department from T&C was there with booths, prizes, giveaways, games and lots of information. And of course there was the free food. Members of the Dean’s office along with Department Chairs and other VIPs grilled free hamburgers on the specially-made UVU Auto-grill which is an exact replica of the Automotive Department’s World Record setting race car.
All students got a free T&C t-shirt, some stylish green T&C sunglasses and entered over 13 different contests to win prizes ranging from new iPads to gift cards to speaker systems to free airplane rides, etc.
“It was a great day and a chance for us to welcome back our T&C students,” said Ernie Carey, Dean of the College of Technology and Computing. “Plus, it was quite rewarding to see many students who haven’t declared a major get to see exactly what our College can offer.”
Students spent time launching water balloons, directing robots, dancing to the DJ’s music, competing in several games and many even took the chance to man a hose from one of the new fire trucks recently acquired by the School of Emergency Services.
The Culinary Arts Department drew a huge crowd with their ice sculpture demo, their freshly baked goodies and a spectacular carved fruit display.
“This is amazing,” exclaimed one student. “All these programs in one place showing off what they’ve got, plus free stuff and free lunch too! Can we do this every week?”
(FYI – the next Dean’s Day is scheduled for September 2011)
