To kick off the new semester, the UNT Council of Engineering and Student Affairs is holding a Back To School Bash 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday at Discovery Park.

The casual get-together was created to welcome transfer and upperclassmen students to the College of Engineering. However, this event welcomes any UNT student and admission is free with a UNT ID card.

“We want to do this in a fun and relaxing way that allows students to stop in and meet us,” director of student affairs Lisa Campbell said.

The event will include pizza and drinks along with a PlayStation 3 and Wii for the gamers. The highlight of the evening is a showing of “Ender’s Game,” a movie adapted from the Orson Scott Card novel of the same name.

“Ender’s Game is my favorite book,” freshman electrical engineer Craig Bonner said. “I did not know there was a movie, so I am excited to go see it.”

There will be an office and organization fair, and many of the groups will have giveaways and games for students to play. University Program Council member Caitlin Huntley said the fair is designated to reach out to students who do not have access to main campus resources.

“We help inform students about upcoming events so they can be more involved on campus,” she said.

Sarah Tucker, coordinator of the student learning center, said that the learning center needs exceptional engineering students to volunteer their services to help tutor other students in the same field.

Pratheesh Varghese, former president of the Council of Engineering Organization and recruiter for UNT chapter of the Association of Energy Engineers, said that the council is hoping for a great turn out.

“This is one of the events we try to take advantage of and remind students that Discovery Park is still a campus that cares about and caters to the engineering students,” he said.

Transportation to Discovery Park is available through the UNT’s Discovery Park bus until 5:30 p.m. and the Campus Cruiser after 5:30 p.m.
