Thursday, Sept. 19, was a big day for the College of Engineering, linking the past (pun intended) to the future at #LINKBASH as we bid farewell to the Link - the building that connected Scott Engineering Center and Nebraska Hall. More than 200 students, faculty and staff took part.
The Link will be razed as part of Phase 1 of the College's building and expansion project.
Because of the upcoming demolition, a time capsule buried in 1987 to celebrate the 75th Engineering Week was unearthed so it could be moved to a temporary home in the College.
Father Bill Holoubek, a 1989 agricultural engineering graduate and manager of the student project team 32 years ago, returned to join Dean Lance C. Perez, College faculty, staff and students (including members of the Engineering Student Advisory Board) in witnessing the event.
Later, things got a little messy as we enjoyed pizza and "decorated" the old Civil Engineering offices and each other with paint-dipped sponges and colored powder. Let's just say those free white t-shirts that were given out to commemorate the event ended up looking more like tie-dyed classics.
