UW CEE alumni excel in team spirit! More than 100 UW CEE alumni and guests gathered for a tailgate party before the Huskies’ homecoming game against Oregon State University on Saturday, October 22. Held in a new location this year, the Structural Research Laboratory, attendees enjoyed food and drinks (served out of a concrete canoe!) and reconnected with colleagues, former classmates, friends and faculty.
This year, the annual alumni tailgate marked the public launch of UW’s campus-wide fundraising campaign “Be Boundless: For Washington, For the World.” During the event, Chair Greg Miller shared that the CEE department at Georgia Tech recently concluded a similar campaign with an impressive 50 percent alumni giving rate. Miller issued a challenge to UW CEE alumni to match this participation rate, saying “If Georgia Tech can do it, why can’t we?”
