On Tuesday, February 25th at 3:30 PM, Professor David Billington, the Newmark Distinguished Lecturer, will be taking time to meet with students and answer questions. This would be a great opportunity to ask any questions you have regarding the lecture, or of his research and career in general.
Professor Billington is recognized for his work in large-scale dams and bridge infrastructure, as well as a larger historic picture of engineering in the twentieth century. He will be addressing the role of civil engineers in society and the impacts of civil engineering and architecture during Monday’s Distinguished Newmark lecture.
The meeting will take place in 1311 Newmark.
Please RSVP below if you’re interested in attending!

Getting involved in SEGSO is a great way to have a positive impact on your fellow graduate students.

We’ll be carving pumpkins and providing apple cider! We’d also love it if you could bring a food dish to share with everyone. Pumpkin pie, your famous spinach artichoke dip, a cultural dish…whatever you like!
What more could you want to kick the fall season in gear?
If you can bring a dish for the potluck spread, sign up below. The more delicious food, the happier everyone will be.

Also, if you want to carve a pumpkin, we’ll provide the carving tools, and all you have to do is stop by County Market (or any other pumpkin-purveying locale of your choice) and bring your own pumpkin. We unfortunately don’t have the resources to transport a ton of pumpkins to Newmark on our own.
The best pumpkin wins bragging rights! Or perhaps a prize! Get excited.
We hope to see you all there! Tell your friends, and let’s make this a perfect way to unwind after the Structural Dynamics exam (for at least a number of you).
