SAMA, founded in 1975, is a nonprofit organization for students whose interests lie in the administration, business, and management activities of the aviation industry. Affiliated with UND’s Odegard School, its primary objectives are to promote aviation professionalism at the collegiate level and further the aviation knowledge of the entire University student body. The Aerospace Conference was organized to increase students’ awareness of current issues in aviation. Employers throughout the industry are invited to speak about career opportunities, current events, and the future of aviation. Through a variety of viewpoints presented by guest lecturers, students will be able to increase their knowledge of the aerospace industry and expand their horizons for future employment.
Parents Weekend, hosted by Alpha Eta Rho (AHP), will be held April 26-27 in conjunction with the Aerospace Conference and Career Fair. Activities begin with a pancake breakfast (sponsored by UND’s Women in Aviation, International (WAI) Chapter), followed by airport tours of Flight Operations, airport rescue and fire fighting, and static aircraft displays. Tours of campus facilities include the John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences (Odegard, Clifford and Ryan Halls), including simulator flights at Ryan Hall. Over 250 students will also have an opportunity to take their parents for a flight in one of UND Aerospace’s aircraft.
