SCE Spring Picnic Well Attended Despite the Weather

Students at the 2013 SCE Spring Picnic

The annual Spring Picnic sponsored by the SCE Student Council went on despite the cold and rain on April 23, 2013. Everyone just moved inside and continued to party. SCE students, faculty and staff enjoyed a great lunch complete with burgers (both veggie and regular) and potato salad! Volunteers from each of the SCE student teams and organizations helped the SCE Student Council keep the food and entertainment going strong. Thank you to all the student volunteers that helped to put on the show and the food. Great Event!

SCE Fall Picnic Hit with Students!

Students welcomed a break from their studies, a tasty lunch and good cheer as they turned out for SCE’s annual Fall picnic, sponsored by the SCE Student Council on September 22 on the Quad outside of Flarsheim Hall.  The rain ended just in time for students to enjoy a picture perfect day as the skies cleared.  SCE Alumni President Scott Saxton stopped by to present a $1000 check to help purchase new lab equipment.  Even our local fire fighters couldn’t resist stopping  by to check out the food and the Baja Buggy.

Student Council Picnic Kicks Off the Year

The School of Computing and Engineering (SCE) Student Council fed 400 students, faculty and staff at the SCE Welcome Picnic on September 2. Sandwiches, chips and sodas were provided by the council, and the first 300 students received a t-shirt with the winning slogan for the annual SCE slogan contest. This year’s winning slogan was submitted by Haiyang Qian:

The world of chemistry is made up of 108 elements;
The world of mathematics is made up of 10 digits;
The world of physics is made up of 4 basic particles;
The world of computer science and engineering {we} is made up of 0 and 1.
Welcome to the simplest world!

Dean & Newt

“I can’t believe the fall picnic has become such a tradition. Ten minutes before the food arrived there were a hundred students lined up for a free lunch and t-shirt,” Erik Knight, Student Council president, said. “It’s always fun to serve lunch to your professors and Dean. I tried to bargain lunch for grades but no one would go for it.”
SCE Student Council provides support to all currently enrolled students and recognized student groups in the School of Computing and Engineering at UMKC. The council is responsible for allocating funds to SCE student groups, promoting group activities and assisting with the administration and organization of activities of multiple groups, including the annual e-week activities.
