TAMU October 2014 Meeting – Kim Lyons


The Texas A&M University SEAoT Student Chapter has already had a pretty busy October. We hosted Joel Barron, P.E. and Bryan Tyson, E.I.T. from the Dallas office of Thornton Tomasetti. Joel and Bryan gave a presentation over some of the recent sports projects Thornton Tomasetti completed. Included in the presentation was TCU’s Amon G. Carter Stadium, the redevelopment of SMU’s Moody Coliseum, and the current sports project, the Minnesota Multi-purpose Stadium. The students really enjoyed the presentation.
TAMU SEAoT took 35 students on a field trip to Dallas on October 3rd. Hunt and Joiner hosted us. We went to the Hunt and Joiner office in Dallas where we got a tour of the office, lunch, and a tour of the Old Parkland project that is currently being constructed. The tour was amazing and the students were shown a lot. We are very thankful for companies like Hunt and Joiner that are so hospitable to students. Here is a picture of all the students at the project location.
We look forward to the Houston/Gulf Coast meeting this month.
