On Thursday, October 5th, DPEA held a special Back-to-School night for parents of junior and senior students. Parents had an opportunity to hear from DPEA staff about the upcoming year, as well as hearing some of last year’s seniors speak about their experiences and achievements. Recent graduates shared insight about how the engineering academy has impacted them over their four years and positioned them for their academic futures.
“We were blown away by learning about all the detailed work that goes into the design and creation of the junior year project, the kinetic sculpture. We can’t wait to see the finished project. It was also really helpful to hear about what's coming in the senior year, and how to plan for it. Hearing the real-life experiences of the two recent DPEA graduates was also also a high point. We came away from the evening with a much better appreciation of what to expect this junior year in the DPEA!"
On Sunday before school started, the incoming DPEA freshmen and their families were treated to a fun and informative welcome on campus. We all remember how confusing a new campus seems at first, and all the questions we have:
How will I find my classes?
Where do they keep safety goggles again?
Where do I sit for lunch?
