Take that!

pie in faceAssociate Professor Doug Price volunteered for this one – a pie in the face, thrown by students in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Chemical Engineering on April 9 as part of a week-long Engineers Week observance. Jason Zapka, part-time faculty, Electrical and Computer Engineering, said student organizations in the College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics organized a series of entertaining and educational special events in late March, including a “Penny Wars” competition, in which students in the winning department earned the right to toss a pie at a professor. Zapka said Engineers Week was a popular event on campus in the 1990s, and student organizations plan to revive that tradition.
