Mechanical engineering 1987 - 30th reunion

Mech '87

  • Grad year: 1987
  • Program: Mechanical Engineering

Club Mech ’87 celebrated our 30-year reunion with a pub night on campus, a round of golf and a dinner cruise. Over 30 of us met on Friday night, grads only, at Mahony & Sons where we shared appies, bevies and stories. We wandered off along West Mall, assessing the new additions to the campus since our time; most of them met our approval and some were astounding! We were very happy to see the old Barn successfully persist but missed the Old Cheez. We stood around the plaza where the Cheez used to stand and reminisced about our exploits on and off campus.

20 grads played a round of golf on Saturday morning but others met up in small groups or toured the town until the evening’s festivities. After meeting at Cardero’s for pre-boat bevies, 40 of us boarded the Constitution and headed into the sunset.

We had so much fun reconnecting with each other that we decided we need to meet more frequently. So, we now have annual pub nights in the works. If you are on our reunion list, watch for the announcements. If you would like to be added to our list, let one of us know!
