IEEE Room Summer Closure

The IEEE room is now closed for the summer. This means that the IEEE officers will not be holding regular open hours until the beginning of the fall semester. However if you would like to use the room for an event or project workspace you can email Alex Moser ( or another officer to set up a time. We will get back to you as soon as we can. 

We would also like to thank everyone who supported our club and put the IEEE room to good use these past two semesters. We had a fun and eventful year and look forward to having another one in the fall.

Have a great summer and stay safe. We hope to see you again in August!
