General Meeting 11/4/14

Hopefully for those of you that attended the Rail Day Expo and/or Railroad Night found the day to be a great success, as we sure think so. First and foremost, there is a hockey game this weekend, and if you are interested in hanging out with Engineered Rail Solutions in their box, you must contact Chris Blessing or David Nelson soon!

Our next general meeting is approaching quickly, and we have a very exciting speaker visiting us! Greg Garrison, Vice President of Union Pacific Railroad's North Region. Also, we will be giving away a $75 bookstore gift card, so it may be worth a trip to Fisher 131. No matter what you are majoring in here at Tech, you're more than welcome to join us. Free pizza and pop will be provided and we hope to see you there!

Railroad Day Student Expo and our 10th Annual Railroad Night 
are next week! (OCTOBER 14th)

So many opportunities, so much to see!

This is one day you will not want to miss... Our first annual Rail Day Student Expo (11 AM - 4 PM) will consist of equipment displays, lunch with the rail industry, and networking opportunities galore! There are well over a dozen companies coming, and they are here to meet you! This is a great time to see what the rail industry is all about while learning where you can exploit your talents within the industry. All majors are welcome, as the industry is looking for much more than just Civil Engineers (but they still want you too, civils!). 

 Rail Day: Dow Courtyard/Lobby 11 AM - 4 PM

Continue the day of rail with us at our 10th Annual Railroad Night where we will be having dinner with industry, a raffle for prizes, a keynote presentation and more networking opportunities. This is a relaxed event and is supposed to be fun, but make sure you dress at least business casual

Rail Night: MUB Ballroom 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
5:00 - Q&A "Meet the Industry" Session (come ask your questions!)

We're all very excited for what is planned for next week, please come and see what the industry is all about... Maybe you'll find that a career in rail offers you your dream future.

K-Day Was a Success!

We had a lot of fun at K-Day this year!  Many students stopped by to try their hand at the spin wheel and some railroad trivia.  It's looking like we have some rail-intrigued students, and given the fact we filled up all the chairs at our first general meeting, it is safe to say K-Day was a great success!
