Student Night at USC

SAE Carolina 2015 Student Night was extra special. This is the 40th anniversary of the Baja and what better host school to have than the University of South Carolina who hosted the very 1st SAE Baja in 1976. Special guests were Dr. Richard Greaves, 2015 SAE President, and Dr. William Shapton, Prof. Emeritus Michigan Tech and the 'Father of Baja'.

The event began with a Social Hour with each of the 10 CDS Teams displaying their vehicles and discussing design with the public. We then had a BBQ dinner with welcoming remarks by Dr. Greaves and a short presentation on the history of Baja the SAE CDS Program by Dr. Shapton.

6 Schools were present and made timed presentations: Georgia Southern (FSAE, Baja), Clemson (FSAE, Baja), UNC-Charlotte (FSAE), NC State (FSAE, Baja), NC A&T (Baja, Aero), and USC (Baja).
