That is the sound of celebration. As we wind down the CMGT programs first year in existence I would like to invite all our students, faculty and friends to a Potluck Dinner May 8, 2013 at 6:00p Building 2 room 614. So Students bring something to share with everyone. I’ll be bringing our award winning stew, looking for someone to make the rice, bring drinks, and bring utensils. Please let me know if you are able to make it.

Mr. T

Thanks to Alan Levi of NodicPCL who informed me of the DBIA $5,000 Scholarship that is available to our students.

We have recently formed a Construction Management Association of America student chapter.  Mr. T wants us to “have fun” with this new project and believes that “open and active participation for all students” is of utmost importance.  I agree wholeheartedly!  And, as your newly appointed president, I am encouraging all of you to join.  We need your personal involvement to successfully “break ground”, so please attend our first CMAA Student Chapter Member meeting on Monday, April 22, at 5:00 p.m. in the classroom next to Mr. T’s office.  Hope to see you there.
