In keeping with the annual tradition, the ORIE faculty hosted student potluck dinners during the fall and spring semesters. Both events were organized by the INFORMS Student Chapter and attended by faculty members, students, and their family and friends. The fall potluck was hosted in a park where faculty and students were able to flaunt their culinary skills and bond over multiple games of basketball. The spring potluck was hosted at Prof. Ross Baldick's ranch, where everyone was able to hike and splash in the creek. Both events were great fun and very Texas!
