Annual Faculty-Alumni-Student Happy Hour

Each Spring, typically at the end of April, the department faculty, students and alumni are invited to Happy Hour at McGonigel's Mucky Duck. If the weather is nice, the gathering is taken outside to the back deck. In the past, the Mucky Duck has provided a generous, and free, happy hour buffet.

We have a great time with over 100 faculty, alumni, staff, students and friends of the department showing up each year. If you have not attended in the past, you should give it a try this year. The Mucky Duck is an Irish pub where the whole family is welcome.

Want to See What our Students are Doing?

Please join us at our virtual Student Research Conference & Industry Open House, an annual event of talks and poster presentations run by the students that takes place the morning and afternoon before the happy hour. See the Student Research Conference page for the date, times and more information. We hope you will join us virtually this year.
