FGCU Engineering E-Week

Once a year, the busy tone of Holmes Hall softens as the U.A. Whitaker College of 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.

This year, the festivities began on Monday with a catered breakfast from Einstein Bagel on the fourth floor lounge and balcony. Given that the space is usually reserved as a place for teachers to escape, allowing it to be open to all was a treat for the students and a great way to kick off the E-week tradition with food and a great view.

On Day 2, the 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!!!

On Day 3 there was a beauty pageant of sorts. Men and women engineers put on their best business attire and competed as couples.
On Day 4, there were various games set up outside on the lawn including bowling and a catapult game in which you were to aim at a target.
On Day 5 there was a Grand Finale. 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.
