As the TAMU traffic bowl team is heading to Boston for the grand championship in August (4-7), they need the fellow aggies cheering for them. The Jim Carvell fellowship is set up by TexITE to financially support students who have demonstrated high-level of commitment to ITE. The ITE members who are from the same university of the winning bowl team in Texas have HIGH chances of getting the fellowship. And TAMUite will cover the remaining portion of the travel expenses to the recipient of the fellowship. Therefore, do not pass up this chance, and apply here to earn a trip to Boston to be the biggest fan of the TAMUite traffic bowl team.

Do you really know our professors? I can assure you that "Intimidating" is not the only word to describe our professors. All our professors are surprisingly nice and approachable outside of the classroom. Don't you want to get to know them better? Here is a great opportunity to mingle with our faculty members.
All TAMUite members are invited to the Oaks park over at the Harvey road to mingle with our faculty members outside the classroom. This social meeting features Dr. Hawkins, Dr. Burris, Dr. Quadrifoglio and Dr. Lord. The amenities in the park include a sandvolley ball court, a basketball court, a playground, Frisbee golf and of court sheltered BBQ pits with restroom. So we will have some fun activities to do besides eating BBQs and chatting.
Please DO RSVP here on Facebook ASAP but no later than May 17, so we will prepare just enough food for everyone.
When:Tuesday, May 28, 12:00pm
We are thrilled to invite Dr. Joseph Blaschke from the City of College Station to talk to us on the topic "Career choices as an engineer: what to expect in the real-world".
