Rain may have saturated Houston last weekend, but it didn't dampen the cougar spirit at the PROMES 40th Anniversary barbecue held in front of Engineering Building 1 on Saturday.

Hundreds of current PROMES students and PROMES alums gathered to celebrate the history, longevity and success of the program, which serves as a community for undergraduate engineering students and offers academic support and skills development. Partygoers also enjoyed a dunk tank, inflatable slide and a photo booth complete with wacky props and costumes.
