Announcements & Accolades


Winter Election Results

We’re pleased to announce that Alice Root will be ASCE president and Tara Thomas will be ASCE treasurer for the 2017 – 2018 academic year!

Spring elections for secretary, vice president(s), team captains, communications, outreach, and web will open in early May during the general meeting. Keep an eye on the newsletter for updates.

Student Presentation

The ASCE student chapter is looking for Civil and Environmental Engineering students interested in presenting on engineering-related topics. Topics of interests may include but are not limited to:

  • Capstone Project
  • Honors Thesis
  • Personal Interests i.e. Brooklyn Bridge, Smart Cities, Bonneville Dam

This is a great opportunity to practice public speaking and to inform fellow peers of current student projects and current events. Presentations may range from 5-15 minutes and may also be presented in teams.

We’re looking to combine 4-5 presentations into a lunch & learn, so we’ll provide refreshments during your presentation. The presentation day(s) will likely be mid to late May.

If you are interested in participating, please fill out the google form at and email any further inquiries to

Thank you,
Alice Root
