"The purpose of TCM day is to celebrate our roots of engineering at UTEP and to celebrate the profession of engineering." -Richard Schoephoerster, College of Engineering Dean
UTEP students, faculty and alumni participated in the University's oldest tradition by celebrating TCM Day on campus.
One of UTEP’s longest running traditions gets underway! This year’s may commencement ceremony will be one-of-a-kind! Not only will more than 2,000 students graduate during the university’s centennial year — they’ll all graduate together! The ceremony will begin at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 17 at Sun Bowl Stadium.
This year’s TCM Day celebration at The University of Texas at El Paso promises to be a blast with Miners whitewashing the “M,” kissing the blarney stone and walking the long green line.
Engineering students at The University of Texas at El Paso have kissed the University's version of the Blarney Stone, whitewashed the "M" on the mountain near the Sun Bowl, and engaged in various feats of agility, strength and cunning to honor the University's mining heritage during the Texas College of Mines Day, or TCM Day, for nearly 100 years.
Two lectures will take place this week along with TCM Day.
Celebrated each year in March in observance of St. Patrick’s Day, TCM Day is the oldest continuous student tradition at UTEP.
Pre-Register for TCM Day 2014 now.
March is a time to treasure old memories and create new ones at The University of Texas at El Paso. The proof is in this month’s calendar of Centennial events that include some things old, some things new, some things borrowed and some things … green.
Today is Day 23 in the Countdown to UTEP’s Centennial Year. TCM Day is the oldest tradition on the UTEP Campus. Students, faculty, and staff at the College of Engineering pay homage to Saint Patrick, the patron saint of engineers.
