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.
"...all the live long day..." - Alicia doesn't need the song sheets
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!
