39TH ANNUAL TECH FAMILY WEEKEND ASCENDS UPON THE SCHOOL OF MINES
Students, faculty, and staff at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology ( SDSM& T) welcome the families of their students to this year’s Groovy Tech Family Weekend Friday, November 5 – Saturday, November 7, 1999. The student and community- based entertainment planned will help families better understand their student’s “ Tech Experience.”
Far Out activities will show families what college life is like for students attending the School of Mines. Faculty will be participating in the weekend events and will show you what going to class is like for the students, and Tech President Dr. Richard Gowen will be delivering the state of the university address. Dr. Gowen will be accessible to answer questions, or just talk with and get to know the students and their families.
And no college experience can be complete without attending the Saturday football game. The Hardrockers take on Dakota Wesleyan University in an SDIC match- up at O’Harra Stadium at 1: 00. Those non- football fans can take advantage of the free bowling in the Surbeck Student Center.
“ We are really looking forward to a great weekend - the students have put a lot of hard work into planning the activities, and we hope that everyone has a nice visit,” said Michelle Howell, Director of Surbeck Student Center and Student Activities.
