SOCORRO, N.M., Sept. 15, 2005—The New Mexico Tech Department of Humanities recently hosted its annual picnic for students, faculty, and staff at the park area known as La Raj on the campus of the state-supported science and research university in Socorro.
The afternoon was filled with food, conversation, and fun as professors in the Tech humanities department gathered to chat with students majoring in Technical Communication (TC) or students with a general interest in TC or any of the minor studies programs the department offers.
The picnic was also an opportunity for new students to get to know what the TC program involves and what the New Mexico Tech humanities department is all about. Experienced students and professors alike were on hand to answer questions and address concerns.
Tech’s Department of Humanities offers a Bachelor of Science and a minor program in TC, as well as minors in Hispanic studies, history, literature, and philosophy.
