Media Advisory – Engineering

Organizers say150 energetic engineering majors will challenge themselves at tricky, outdoor team building exercises from 9:30 to 11:15 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 18, on the west lawn of the Engineering Building at Southern Illinois University Carbondale.

The College of Engineering is sponsoring the activities to welcome students to campus and to bring them together early to meet their peers. Specially trained staff members from SIUC's Touch of Nature Outdoor Environmental Center will lead the activities — which require participants to use their bodies to accomplish their team's objectives.

Reporters and photographers are welcome to cover the events. For more information, call Bruce C. Chrisman, who's helping coordinate this and other events associated with Engineering Success Week at SIUC, at 618/453-4321.
