The beloved tradition, more formally known as the sixth annual recognition ceremony, culminated with the presentation of hard hats to each second-year student and stickers to each third- and fourth-year student denoting their accomplishments.
School of Engineering Dean Justin Kile began the ceremony by reminding students why this day is important to the school.
“This event is the embodiment of that team spirit as we all come together to celebrate,” emphasized Kile. “Remember, during Welcome Weekend, I told you two things: Getting a degree from the School of Engineering isn’t easy and that you’re about to become a part of a team. You’re making progress in a challenging program — and that’s something to be recognized.”
“I’ve just been waiting for this since my first year,” said Hope Kavulich ’22, a mechanical engineering major. “This is such an exciting day.”
John Bau, director of career development for the School of Engineering, recalled a special moment he had at last year’s ceremony when he felt he was a part of the team.
