No one knows better what the graduating class of 2014 has achieved than those who came before them.

Alumni returned to Skule on Friday, April 4 to congratulate the class of 1T4 and 1T3+PEY on making it to the end of the challenging Design Fair week, culminating in the final Design Showcase in the Bahen Atrium. Arshia Tabrizi (CompE 9T5) congratulated the group and drove home the importance of engaging with the alumni community.

“Don’t just think of your alumni group as your current classmates,” said Tabrizi. “Think about the ten years of graduates who came before you, and the ten years who will come after. That’s your network.”

Professors Phil Anderson and Khoman Phang conferred certificates of achievement on the groups whose projects stood out and qualified them for the final Design Showcase. ECE Professor and Chair Farid Najm encouraged the graduates to stay in touch.

Students enjoyed beverages and hors d’oeuvres, chatting with each other, their professors, and new alumni network.
