The Bucknell Engineering Alumni Association (BEAA) and the Bucknell Club of Northern California sponsored a Historical Overview and Walking Tour of the Golden Gate Bridge on March 23, 2014.
With attendance at more than 45 alumni, parents and friends, the event began with a University Update by Keith Buffinton, dean of the College of Engineering, followed by a historical overview of the Golden Gate Bridge by Jim Orbison '75, professor of civil and environmental engineering. During the talk, Prof. Orbison provided the group important facts and vital statistics about the bridge such as:
After the talk, the group enjoyed a sunny, but extremely windy walk on the bridge. Prof. Orbison offered historical information about the bridge via headsets to the group throughout the walking tour.
