Saturday October 29 was the ESF Fall Open House and we had more than 40 visitors to the ERE venue. While the turnout was impressive, the student quality was outstanding! The visiting high school seniors were interested in finding ways to engineer a sustainable planet and were excited by the ERE course, club, and leadership opportunities.  During the open house presentation thy met an ERE student who explained how his hard work at ESF resulted in a Department of Energy (DOE) summer internship and an ongoing DOE cooperative research project this fall. As the high school students told me about their advanced high school courses and impressive accomplishments it left little doubt they had the preparation and ambition to thrive in the ERE academic program and achieve their life goals. We look forward to sharing that journey with them! As part of the open house campus tour they visited our Centennial Hall dorm. When they arrive on campus next fall they will be the 2nd class to occupy Centennial Hall.

Centennial Hall is home to our ERE freshman. The 2012 incoming class will enjoy this same outstanding facility!
