Engineering Student Council Welcome Back Barbecue
Engineering Student Council and the KU School of Engineering have scheduled several activities to let everyone celebrate the start of the fall semester and help freshmen ease into their new surroundings.

A welcome back to school barbecue for all engineering students is set for noon to 2 p.m., Tuesday, Aug.17, in the engineering courtyard between Eaton and Learned Halls.  It’s a chance for free food, mingling with friends, and learning about ways to get involved in various organizations.  

Frosh Frenzy is from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 21, in the engineering courtyard.  Incoming engineering freshmen will meet classmates and take part in a race across campus.  

Frosh Frenzy activities take freshmen across campus with some of their new classmates.
Rockin’ on Learned Lawn is set for 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the engineering courtyard and complex lawn near Eaton and Learned Halls.  All students, faculty and staff of the School of Engineering are invited to take part in this event, which runs in conjunction with the School of Engineering faculty/staff picnic. There’s live music, free food and a chance to “Dunk the Dean.”  Guests are invited to bring their favorite dessert (homemade or store bought) to share and help create a large treat smorgasbord for everyone to enjoy.
