This year’s Freshman Welcome week was packed with a variety of activities for students to get to know MSOE and all the people that make up their new community. But the faculty in the Civil and Architectural Engineering and Construction Management Department got especially creative in welcoming their new students by taking a cruise down the Milwaukee River out into Lake Michigan’s harbor to learn about the architecture of Milwaukee. While enjoying the tour and learning about the city, students were able to meet the faculty, chat with their advisors and make friends with the rest of the new architectural, civil and construction management students. Just another way MSOE creates a classroom in the real world.
