I hope you had a relaxing and restful spring break. I know I should have done more studying than I did. With the conclusion of spring break the beginning of the end of the semester is coming closer. I know it is a bit early to talk about finals, but its never to early to start review old materials so you are not overwhelmed at the end of the semester. Speaking of semesters, have you thought about your schedule for this summer and fall? Registration is coming close. Don’t forget if you need to met with your advisor to plan your coming semesters.

By Shelly Willingham Engineering Expo has come and gone. That means only one thing...E-Ball. For those of you who don't know Engineer’s Ball (E-Ball) is a time to award E-Expo winners their prizes, a time to present the new board of directors of student council, and time to have a good time with all of you engineering buddies. This year E-Ball will be held at the Galt House on March 31. Dinner will be served at 7. Tickets are $20 each and include dinner. I have been asked by several people what to wear to E-Ball. Well the attire is semi formal to formal. You will normally see the guys in suits or in sports coat and tie. Ladies normally wear semi formals or formals, most wear formals though. I suggest a long dress since it is March and still kind of cold. Plus with a long dress you can wear flip flops with out anyone noticing. Let’s face it heals can start to hurt after a while. I am not saying you must wear a long dress, but in years past that is what I have normally seen. There normally are several shorter semi formal dresses. Wear something that you will be comfortable in, yet is still in the semi formal to formal category. E-Ball is a time to have fun and celebrate all the hard work you have done. Hope to see you all there!
