February 21-27 saw the 103rd Engineers Week celebrations on OU’s Norman campus. Throughout the student led week, petroleum engineering students were found at taking part in a variety of events to honor the engineering profession and those pursuing it at OU.
E-Week kicked-off, as it always does, with the annual Road Rallye on Sunday, co-hosted, this year, by MPGE student organizations SPE, AADE and WPGE. During this fast-paced race around Norman and the OU campus, students were seen singing at O’Connell’s, sprinting through the engineering buildings and solving clues along the way trying to come in first place. MPGE’s Chris Shea and his team placed 2nd.
Other events taking place were Trivia Night, the Games Tournament, Casino Night, the E-Olympics, a Blood Drive and Engineers Got Talent, a night that shows everyone that engineers are more than just brains and good looks and where MPGE’s Samuel Son took home the prize of Crowd Favorite.
The week ended with the Engineers Ball and Awards Banquet. We were honored this year to have Nate Johnson representing petroleum engineering as an Engineers’ King candidate, MPGE’s Student Relations Coordinator Francey Freeman nominated for the Cherry Griffith Outstanding Staff Award and senior Madeline Bull presented with the St. Pat’s Award for Outstanding Senior.
