Last year’s event raised more than $4,000 for OccuPaws, a guide dog association, and the goal is to raise even more money in 2018. More details can be found on the Facebook event page, including advance ticket purchase.


Paul Gross, MI G ’83, recently published a weather forecast for Metro Detroit. Gross is meteorologist and executive producer of weather for @Local4News WDIV-TV Detroit (MI). He included the following paragraph in his article:

“Wednesday is ‘Pi Day’ across the country (or ‘Tau Beta Pi Day’ for those of us who are members of the National Engineering Honor Society). You see, the date is 3/14, and the number, Pi, is an endless number that starts with 3.14. In fact, if you want to get really crazy about this, you can celebrate at 1:59 p.m., because it will be 3/14, 1:59…and the first five numbers in Pi are 3.14159. By the way, if you’re wondering how a meteorologist was inducted into the National Engineering Honor Society, at U of M the meteorology program is in the College of Engineering, and my grades were good enough to be selected!
