Alumni and Students gather for ECE picnic

April 20, 2022 08:56 AM
As finals approached and anxieties rose, there was a desperate need for respite. Luckily, the ECEn department came to the rescue.

The smoke was thick, but so were the patties that Dr. Jeffs and Dr. Beard served valiantly as grill masters.
