Cast Student Delegates

We built an E-Bike!

This year, we enhanced our college delegate selection process. The 2012 CAST undergraduate and graduate delegates were selected from a group of students who were pre-selected to represent their own departments during commencement weekend. From that pool of honorees, the CAST College Delegate Selection Committee then selected both an undergraduate and graduate college delegate. I am pleased to announce the following students will be honored as the 2012 CAST Department and College Delegates:
