Top Projects Named at Senior Design Expo

Three projects by students from the Lee College of Engineering were judged to be the best at the recent Industrial Senior Design Expo. During the event, project teams presented their completed projects and mid-project design posters.

Providing students with an innovative, hands-on learning experience, the Industrial Senior Design Program is educating engineering students, supporting industry partners and benefiting the State of North Carolina. The program teaches students how to apply their years of math, science, and engineering knowledge to solve the unique problems presented by many progressive North Carolina companies. The Lee College of Engineering encourages multi-disciplinary projects that involve engineering and technology solutions in the disciplines of mechanical, electrical, computer, systems, environmental and civil engineering.

South Village Crossing to Open in January

South Village Crossing, the new 56,146-square-foot dining and gathering facility nestled between Moore and Scott residence halls, is scheduled to serve its first meals Tuesday, Jan. 6.

"Our students, faculty, staff and guests will be impressed with the tasteful design, culinary innovation and warm, welcoming atmosphere," said Ana Alvarez, director of auxiliary services. "We expect this building to solidify the sense of community at South Village and attract and delight students and staff from all over campus."

South Village Dining (SoVi) features an expansive hall where all food production will be visible. Patch Hadden, executive chef for South Village Crossing said, "The thing I am most excited about is being able to prepare and cook out front. It allows us [culinary staff] to focus on freshness, quality and plate presentation and allows the students a greater appreciation for putting together a well-balanced meal."
