MIE Department Trips the Light Fantastic at Mullins Center

On Friday, April 13, the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MIE) Department hosted its first Ice Skating Social from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the Mullins Center skating rink. The event was the brainchild of Professors Ian Grosse and Matt Lackner. More than 100 students, staff, and faculty members attended the event and skated their hearts out. One faculty member summed it up nicely: "Matt and Ian – that was so much fun! There was a great vibe going – lots of smiles all around." MIE Department Head Don Fisher added that “The opportunity to talk with friends and students on an informal basis was awesome.” The MIE department is planning to make the Ice Skating Social a regular event in its yearly schedule.
