After delivering the commencement address to the Edward P. Fitts Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, alum Link Neal (Rhett & Link) sat down with department head Julie Swann to discuss Link’s ability to do math, how he used his industrial engineering skills to become a YouTube legend and to answer the question, “Does Link Neal need this?” The interview wraps up with Link submitting himself to a series of rapid-fire questions.
Rhett & Link’s Day on Campus
Rhett and Link began the day by delivering the commencement address to their respective departments. Afterward, they took a tour of the newest engineering building on campus, Fitts-Woolard Hall, which houses both departments (civil, construction and environmental engineering and industrial and systems engineering).
