Parents Weekend Picnic

More than 600 parents, students and faculty members gathered in our “backyard” between Teer Engineering Library and the Levine Science Research Center Saturday October 25 for the annual Parents Weekend BBQ. Freshly prepared hush puppies, fried chicken and pulled pork fed the hungry masses.

"The food was excellent, the weather cooperated and the conversation was great," said Pratt Dean Kristina Johnson.

Pratt parents mingled with the dean, department chairs and faculty and Pratt staff to learn more about the engineering curriculum and student groups. Mechanical engineering students from the Formula SAE race car program brought their latest prototype car, and civil engineering students brought last year's concrete canoe from the Carolina's Conference student design contest.
