Bruce Powers

Test/evaluation engineer | U.S. Navy | Class of 1999

The first place Naval engineer Bruce Powers heads every time he makes it back to campus is the place where it all began — the "stately" Talbot Hall.

That's where the aeronautical engineering grad student (Class of '99) spent more hours than he can count — "doing research, studying and working in computer labs.

"Since I am from the East Coast originally, I always felt like I was walking into some piece of classic Midwestern architecture when I went to work at Talbot Hall. It was always kind of stately to me, and I have many fond memories of my time there and the people I was privileged to work with."
