UKTE June 2001 Thirsty Thursday:

 VIP Guests, Chapter Elections, & Free Drinks  

On June 7th,  UT Engineering Dean Ben Streetman and Assistant Dean for College Relations John Halton joined the UKTE's for Thirsty Thursday at our watering hole, the Texas Embassy in central London.  


The Deans display their new homes                      Man of the Month:  Shahid "100 Margs' Ullah

The crowd enjoyed an update from the Deans on current events back at the 40 acres (Speedway is now a pedestrian mall?  Who knew?) and some of the interesting work being done within the Engineering Department.

Dean Streetman also gave us a summary of their successful trip to England where they held discussions on engineering exchange programs with representatives of Imperial College and top UK companies.  The Deans also held a drawing for loads of great UT goodies that they brought over from The Drag.  Most coveted - several burnt orange umbrellas!  Perfect for the lovely weather we've been having for months.

To mark the event, UKTE Shahid Ullah donated 100 - yes 100 - FREE MARGARITAS, to the group, which were enjoyed by all, and some until closing time (it was reported).  HUGE thanks to Shahid!!

Also held during the evening were UKTE's 2001-2002 chapter elections, the results are posted below.  Stay tuned to this web site for lots more great stuff coming up in the next few months!
