Engineering Society Inaugural Dinner, Dordt College Campus

Dordt engineering graduates are invited to campus on April 30 to participate in an engineering society inaugural dinner.

We hope this society will help forge deeper ties among the engineering department, alumni, and friends. This event will launch our new society by celebrating God's faithfulness during our program's first 35 years of growth. We will also reflect on the program's current state and brainstorm ways to meet today's engineering needs.

Come get reacquainted with fellow Dordt constituents and meet new people who are also passionate about Christ-centered engineering.

Dinner will begin with devotions at 6:45 p.m. in West Commons. If available, you can also join us for a meet and greet (5 p.m.) in the Science and Technology Center Atrium and tour of our new engineering facilities (5:45 p.m.).

This is a free event, but to help us plan accordingly please RSVP by April 20.
