8th Annual Holiday Dinner & Dance

Holiday Dinner and Dance

Civil and Environmental Engineering professor, Jason Gerhard, enjoyed an evening of dinner and dancing with a group of his graduate students.

Western Engineering’s 8th Annual Holiday Dinner & Dance was held Friday, December 5, 2008 at Westhaven Golf & Country Club. The sold out event was attended by 144 Western Engineering faculty, staff, graduate students, retirees, family and friends. The event was organized by Sue Chapman in Western Engineering’s Research & External Relations.

“The holiday dinner and dance is a chance for people in our Faculty to mix and mingle outside the office,” says Chapman. “It’s a great way for everyone to kick-off the holiday season.”

This year’s event saw the highest attendance of graduate students to date. Chapman adds, “I think it’s great to see so many graduate students getting involved with Faculty social events. They are our future alumni so I hope we can continue to keep them engaged throughout the years.”
