One special event that comes to the University of Virginia's School of Engineering and Applied Science every year is Engineering Week. E-week hosted by the Engineering Student Council (Estud) and features a variety of events that have to do with the week’s theme. This year the theme is the Elympics, a clever play on words because it just happened to coincide with the first week of the Winter Olympics. This year, E-week featured fun events, such as a Lego building competition, a root beer keg-kill, Rock Band competition, and human Tetris. If these all seem to "out there" for you, engineering students could also enjoy several free meals provided by the various departments within SEAS. E-week is a time for engineers to show their pride and hopefully provoke a little sympathy from our college counterparts as members of Estud have been giving away "Hug me I'm an Engineer" buttons; cause let’s face it, even us e-schoolers need some human interaction in our lives. E-week ends with a Friday night get-together, better known as f(date), if you don't get it, it's ok...we do. This is all one of the reasons I love UVa, not only are we a top-ranking school academically, but not a day goes by when you don't get to do something fun or try something you've never done before.
