UK COE, WMIAC, & Disney Board (September 2017)

This week the University of Kentucky College of Engineering opened a new student resource, the James and Gay Hardymon Center for Student Success. The goal of the center is to “centralize essential student resources in one convenient location.”

The renovations to the necessary space were made possible from a gift by alumnus James F. Hardymon, KY A ’56, who has supported several initiatives and provided additional funding toward an endowment for the college’s undergraduate research and education abroad programs. Read the article for more details on the center, which includes a location for academic tutoring from the Kentucky Alpha Chapter of Tau Beta Pi.


The West Michigan, Grand Rapids Alumni Chapter of Tau Beta Pi hosted a dinner social at Graydon’s Crossing gastro pub on Monday, August 28. The image below was submitted by Lisa E. Dohn, IL E ’12, the president of the WMIAC. More information on the Association’s alumni chapter can be found here.
