Last Friday, we had the Shell Fall Festival at the Engineering quad where students had the opportunity to learn more about the different student organizations within AME and also get advice on how to thrive as an Aerospace or Mechanical Engineering major. One of the highlights included the dunk booth where students got to dunk their professors into the water tank! Here are some highlights and the different organizations to get involved with.
