The Significance of the Bell:
Throughout society and culture all around the world, a bell has a multitude of symbolic meanings and purposes. Bells can symbolize beginnings and endings, a call to order, or even a command or a warning. Here at the Bell program, the symbol of our bell encompasses all of these.
At the beginning and end of each semester, we ring the bell to acknowledge the passage of time, a new generation of students, and the commencement of the passing generation. The bell-ringing tradition is more than just a routine gathering; it is an opportunity to recognize all the hard work that students put in every semester.
After a student accepts their first engineering position, they are invited to ring the bell, with pride, for the final time. This symbolizes the end of their formal education and the start of their journey into the future as an engineer.
