Once a year, the busy tone of Holmes Hall softens as Engineering students of all fields come together for a week of daily fun called E-week. It is an annual event hosted by the FGCU chapter of Florida Engineering Society.
- Students got a chance to try their hand at the classic dunk tank game. Between classes, students gathered to try their hand at sinking willing participants in a large Dunk Tank. The icing on the cake, however, was that these ‘willing participants’ were, in fact, the beloved instructors and staff.
- A beauty pageant was held. Men and women engineers put on their best business attire and competed as couples.
- There cotton candy and various games set up outside on the lawn including bowling and a catapult game in which you were to aim at a target.
- On the final day a Grand Finale was held. This was a Tug-of-War comprised of faculty/staff vs. Environmental & Civil engineering students.
The students won, of course!
Being able to take part in exciting daily events is a phenomenon that brings students from all areas of engineering fields together as one. Hopefully, FGCU’s Florida Engineering Society will continue this event for years to come and continue to carry on the traditions and rivalries of E-week.
