As Homecoming approaches and I begin to think about all of the great memories that I have from my years on Campus, I will ask what were some of the things you remember the most about Speed School that have impacted your life or career? One of the first things that jumps out at me is the strong bond that I built with my group of classmates once I entered into my major. We certainly spent a lot of time together and developed friendships and business relationships that have extended far beyond the classroom and graduation. Do you stay in touch with any of your Speed classmates, whether it be 5, 10, 20 or 40 years past? Any traditions out there with friends and classmates getting together at your favorite restaurant or gathering place?
Have you been to Speed School’s Homecoming Reception before? If not, you should consider checking it out. It is a great opportunity to meet up with classmates, faculty, staff and current students. It is always interesting to hear about all of the amazing new things going on at Speed, including the Steel Bridge Team, Speed’s Rocket Launch Team and many more groups and events.
The Homecoming Reception is Saturday, October 19. Register today!
We hope to see you there! Go CARDS!
Did you know that the J.B. Speed School of Engineering has a group of Alumni that are actively involved in supporting Speed School? Well…we do, the Speed School of Engineering Alumni Council. The Alumni Council consists of 15 members that are all graduates of Speed School that enjoy the opportunity to give back to Speed School and the local engineering community. The Alumni Council works with the University of Louisville Alumni Association and the Speed School Administration to actively engage Speed Alumni and to support current Speed School students and programs.
This fall look for information regarding upcoming Speed Alumni events and opportunities. Let us know if there is an event you think other Speed Alumni would be interested in participating in, or that you would like to see the Alumni Council facilitate.
We look forward to seeing you this fall! GO CARDS!!!
