On November 12, 2008, the Electrical and Computer Engineering Undergraduate Student Council hosted the second annual ECE Casino Night in the rotunda of the Jeong H. Kim Engineering Building. An estimated 165 students from the A. James Clark School of Engineering “hit the jackpot” with a night full of networking, games, dinner, and prizes.

Engineering students were invited to attend this event to network with representatives from sponsor companies and socialize with fellow students. Students dressed their best, and dropped by employer tables to submit their resumes and talk about job and internship opportunities. Representatives from sponsors Booz Allen Hamilton, Deloitte, Force 3, MicroStrategy, and Thales, came to join in the fun and interact with students.

Ante-Up Entertainment provided professional gaming equipment and dealers. The rotunda was lined with tables for blackjack, poker, and roulette and filled with the sound of poker chips clicking and jazz music from the building PA system. Three Brothers, located in the Hyattsville University Town Center, catered an Italian dinner and dessert.

The Undergraduate Student Council provided door prizes and raffled them off to the attendees. The sponsoring companies also contributed prizes, including an iPod Nano from MicroStrategy as the top prize.
