When students are looking for someone to blame for their MSys or ADES labs, they need look no further than Phillip Cornwell.
As a professor in the mechanical engineering department, Cornwell did extensive work to make those labs what they are today. He’s also worked on a number of other ME labs and courses.
Despite his role in creating some of the toughest courses in the department (or perhaps because he keeps his role a secret), Cornwell regularly scores high ratings on his course evaluations – something he feels makes him qualified for the Dean of Faculty position.
Downgraded debt causes market headaches
Debt ratings agency Standard & Poor’s downgraded the ratings of Greek and Portuguese government debt on Tuesday. Greek debt was downgraded to junk status, meaning that the country’s fiscal products are bad enough that its debt is not investment-worthy. Portuguese debt, although lowered, is still well above junk status. The Greek government has found itself between a rock and a hard place because the international community and the EU continue to ask for more austerity (cost-saving) measures while the Greek populace is already restless over cuts to public sector pay and benefits.
Bridges, concrete canoes, and wastewater were the talks of the town starting Thursday, April 22 until Saturday, April 24, for the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Great Lakes Regional Conference (GLC).
The ASCE GLC is an annual, three-day event that rotates between the sixteen schools that compose the Great Lakes Region. The conference is inteded to be both a business and social event, allowing friendly competition and social interaction with such events as a Glass Halo, a band from Indianapolis, and a cornhole tournament.
Last Saturday morning, countless future Rose engineers got to relive their childhood love of fire trucks at Pi Kappa Alpha’s 2nd annual Fire Truck Pull. The event, which is cosponsored by the Rose and ISU chapters of the fraternity to benefit Indiana’s Special Olympics organization, is a competition where teams of 8 people try to pull a Terre Haute Fire Department truck 100 feet in the shortest amount of time.
Eve 6, consisting of Max Collins (vocals, bass, guitars, piano), Tony Fagenson (drums, percussion) and newly-added Matt Bair (guitar, backing vocals) will be performing at Rose-Hulman, Saturday, May 8th. The band was originally formed in 1995 as Eleventeen, with Jon Siebels at guitar, and no Matt Bair. The band’s first EP, “Eleventeen,” released in 1996, references this earlier name.
“Time To Pretend,” a song about the excesses of fame off MGMT’s first album “Oracular Spectacular,” seems eerily prescient now. “Kids,” another song off of “Oracular,” came out of nowhere to become a smash hit for the group. Listening to “Congratulations,” the group’s second album, it’s clear they’re still processing what this all means.
