Civil Talk E-News October 2014

Dear Alumni

Lee E. Cammack

Scholarship Society Chair and President

Again as Chair and President of the Scholarship Society for the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, I would like to thank you for your ongoing support and let you know about some of the exciting events we have coming up soon.

We look forward this year to our Life Long Learning Conference. This event held every other year will be a great opportunity for you to reconnect with former classmates and other friends from BYU that you have known over the years. Our conference will be held October 16-17, 2014. This year will be especially interesting as the conference will be held on the BYU campus. This will allow you to view the changes on campus since you were last there and to feel the spirit of Homecoming Week more fully by being right there in the middle of it all. We invite you to join us. ...
