On March 11, UTEP engineering students paid Homage to St. Pat the patron saint of Engineering. During this annual celebration students had the opportunity to learn about the College's heritage and the University's roots as a mining and engineering school. TCM (Texas College of Mines) one of the oldest traditions going back to 1949. This year St. Pat was represented by Flor Gallegos (Mech. Eng.) as "Queen of Clovers", a play of words on Alice in Wonderland.
TCM also represents a great opportunity for engineering students to interact with their professors, engineering alumni and their peers. Several members of the Engineering Chapter of the Alumni Association attended the lunch and shared their initiation stories with participating students. Annual activities included whitewashing the "M", singing engineering songs and painting the green lines that separate the College of Engineering from the rest of the University.
