In an effort to continue the momentum behind construction of its new Science and Technology building, Utah State University-Tooele is hosting an Alumni & Family BBQ Event Friday, May 15 at the Tooele City Park from 4-7 p.m.
“We’ve had such a fantastic outpouring from our communities toward construction of this new building,” said Donna Dillingham-Evans, USU-Tooele’s Dean. “We’re encouraging Aggie Nation here in Tooele County to come together Friday to learn how they can help with their new building construction, and just have fun together.”
According to Dillingham-Evans, the new USU building is slated to be completed this fall and is part of the newly developed Tooele County Education Corridor on the west side of Tooele. The Science and Technology building will be 28,000 square feet and house classrooms, offices, laboratories, and study space. A large multi-purpose room will serve student and community needs, and professors in this building will also broadcast science classes to other USU campuses throughout the state. Two weeks ago USU-Tooele held its annual commencement ceremonies in which 153 students received their associates, bachelor’s and master’s degrees.
The Alumni & Family Event will include BBQ, music and dancing, bounce houses, and Aggie Ice Cream. The Pratt Aquatic Center will be also open. For questions about the event, contact USU-Tooele at 882-6611.
