Union Pacific will once again sponsor Project X — the Opening Week team project for all new freshmen. Union Pacific will have representatives on the campus Opening Week to assist our new students with programs and to judge their projects. New students who attend Opening Week, which starts Saturday, Aug. 15, will be divided into 85 mentor groups and will have the opportunity to create a vehicle which will be judged on several objectives — design, creativity, presentation and journal. The week finishes on Friday, Aug. 21, with awards given out to the top teams. The awards ceremony will be held at 9:30 p.m. Friday in the Havener Center.
Last year’s project had outstanding results and new students enjoyed participating with the help of Union Pacific’s partnership. The project allowed new students to have a common learning experience and a positive transition to Missouri S&T. For more information about Opening Week, contact Patty Frisbee at 341-7045.
