Cheers to a fairly successful effort to get Obama on campus, in some capacity. Though smaller in scope than some endeavors, ESC 2014 t-shirts do at least get the job done. Silly engineers, Obama went to the College! OR DID HE…? On an unrelated note, here is a picture of Obama as a pirate. Adorbs. […]

Fu Foundation Bureau Chief Sean Zimmermann attended last night’s abbreviated ESC meeting.

His report, and some admittedly sub-par cameraphone pictures, follow. Gimmicks and costumes dominated the Engineering Student Council forum today, as each of the first year candidates concluded their campaigns with formal speeches. This year’s […]
Every year, an ESC meeting answers all the questions. All the mysterious post-meeting activities, all the jokes that made no sense, and all the surreptitious eye contact – each explained by one ultimate meeting.
