We are pleased to announce that Union Pacific will once again sponsor Opening Week Project X. Union Pacific will have representatives on the S&T campus during Opening Week assisting our new students with programs and judging their projects. Opening Week begins on Sunday, August 12 and lasts through Saturday, August 18. New students will be divided into 85 mentor groups guided by upperclassmen mentors. These mentor groups will have the opportunity to modify an R/C vehicle which will be judged on several objectives – design, creativity, oral presentation, and written reflection deliverables. Project X concludes on Friday, August 17 with a team competition racing throughout the heart of campus. The races will begin outside Schrenk Hall starting around 8:30 am and finish at the Havener Center around 4:00 pm. The awards ceremony recognizing the top teams will be Friday, August 17 at 9:30 pm in the Havener Center. Mark your calendars to attend this S&T tradition and help us in welcoming our new students to campus!
