Thanks to everyone for joining us at the McBride Homecoming Tailgate! The games, Bloody Mary Bar, and class competition proved to be very popular! We hope to see you next year.
We love you, Puzzlers! The Mines Benders Puzzle Safari was so much fun! With 50 teams and almost 200 people, it’s clear that we are a community of puzzlers and thinkers. Thank you to the event McOrganizers, all of the volunteers, and The Golden Puzzle Room for partnering with us. We can’t wait till next year!
Among the several hundred submissions for the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC) Conference this year, 2 proposals by McBride students were accepted. McBriders Chelsea Meilner and Madison Anderson conducted an engaging workshop on the interconnectivity of arts and STEM disciplines. And, Catherine Gable and Wyatt Hinkle provided a poster presentation entitled “Addressing Student Reality: The Effects of Campus Culture on Student Wellness”for which they won 3rd place! They conducted surveys across Mines campus investigating links between perceptions of campus culture and the prevalence of impostor syndrome in our student body. They found that characteristics of impostor syndrome are indeed heavily reflected in Mines students and correlated to pressures to maintain a high GPA and immediately embark upon a career path. Watch for more on their continued important research!
It was great seeing so many new and familiar faces at Preview Mines! The collective honors tables proved to be very popular! Keep an eye out for the next Getting-to-know Mines event because we will definitely be there!
