KALAMAZOO--Activities aimed at raising money for Haiti disaster relief and safe-water supplies in Honduras will share the stage with a student tricycle race and a pie-throwing contest as Western Michigan University engineering students, faculty and staff celebrate their profession during the national Feb. 14-20 observation of Engineers Week.
The week's major annual dinner event on Feb. 16 is the most formal of the week's activities. A second dinner to raise money to rehabilitate a rural water system in Honduras will also take place, and a number of student competitions and activities have been added to the mix this year.
