CSE students, faculty and staff enjoyed a department picnic on Monday, September 12. A choice of beef, chicken or veggie fajitas were served for lunch between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Following lunch everyone enjoyed a special cake, made by Susie Mikler, celebrating the 40th anniversary of the department.
Our new CSE department chair, Barrett Bryant, greeted students at the picnic. After lunch, Dr. Bryant joined students in several games of volleyball. Pictures of the CSE picnic are at this media gallery page.
