Carve Out Some Room; Halloween Leftovers Ahead!

As anyone on either side of the Halloween give-and-take knows, the goodies can last for days (if not months!) after the trick-or-treat bags are emptied. So it is with PCToday’s campuswide correspondents, who provided some sweet souvenirs to carry over into November. On Tuesday, two sections of Technical Drawing & Detailing (CCD 103/104) held their fourth annual Virtual Pumpkin Carving Contest. The 35 students, most of them enrolled in the engineering design technology major, used SolidWorks Software to create virtual jack-‘o-lanterns using skills and techniques that they have acquired since the start of the semester. In addition, a number of college employees marked the day in costume, and Tuesday evening saw the return of another tradition – the Halloween Boofet in the Capitol Eatery.
