The annual banquet gives supporters an opportunity see the beautiful campus and interact with university administrators, other donors and key staff members. The Fidel Center ballroom is lavishly decorated and members are treated to an evening of fun, relaxation and good company.


Each year, an engaging and entertaining guest speaker presents a short talk related to education and New Mexico Tech. Recent speakers have included Socorro Mayor Dr. Ravi Bhasker, former N.M. Gov. Garrey Carruthers, former Tech President Dr. Larry Lattman and Vice President of Research Dr. Van Romero.
