Event Information

Houston Food Bank

We’re going to the Houston Food Bank on Friday, December 4th from 8 am – 12 pm.  Usually when we head out there we have a shift sorting through donated food to make sure that those in need don’t get bad food/goods.  They turn on some music and split us up into tables and let us loose.  It’s a good time to hang out and talk with our ASME crew while doing something great for Houston.  It is important that you go to this LINK to register with the Houston Food Bank BEFORE we head out there so you are able to volunteer.

ASME/Pi Tau Sigma/SAE Department Christmas Party

Through joint efforts of ASME, Pi Tau Sigma, and SAE there will be a Mechanical Engineering Department Christmas Party! This will happen on December 7th from 5pm-8pm. The food is currently undecided, but will likely feature BBQ from Rudy’s. For social fun, we will have some music playing and a photo booth available for capturing the moment with friends. We will also be recognizing our department by selecting a Professor of the Year award, last year Dr. Xuemei Chen was selected. Voting will begin tomorrow and will end on December 2nd.

ASME Tailgate with Energy Coalition

The Cougars are 10-1!  We will be located in spot #46 near the student entrance. Free food will be provided!  We’re going to be grouping up with the Energy Coalition to do tailgates at all of our home games.  A list of our home games can be found at the UH Cougar Football page.  Come on out and hang out with fellow engineers and cheer on our team.
