Faculty and guest list announced for Playing for Pets 2017


You never know who might show up at Playing for Pets, and this year HAC professor Justin Young is pushing the idea even further.

Below is a schedule of faculty, staff and other guests scheduled to appear at this year’s event. All of the participants have agreed to do their best to join in and play a game, with some likely to get specially tailored games to play. It’s an idea that Young says grew organically out of the past two years of the event.

“We were always open to faculty and students participating, but last year even more joined in than the first year,” Young said. “We received such a positive reaction from both students and faculty from playing together, that we really wanted to make sure faculty and staff from all over campus participated.”

Indeed, from the LINK to Mechanical Engineering, from Education to Chemical Engineering–there really are guests from all over. Young encourages students, faculty and staff to stop by and join in with a favorite colleague or professor. If you can’t make it, you can watch the entire event streamed here on the Playing for Pets page.
