Collegiate Chapter Highlights & Images, February 2015

The Texas Alpha Chapter of Tau Beta Pi, at the University of Texas at Austin, is looking to make it four straight Engineer’s Week (E-Week) titles. Hosted by the UT Student Engineering Council, this year’s event pits more than 20 student organizations “in an all-out, Hunger Games style battle for the ultimate prize: the E-Week trophy and year-long bragging rights.”









The TX Alpha chapter has already claimed three victories and currently sits in first place in the “small organization” category. Four members, Anna E. Lindsey, Teresa Wu, Kush S. Muzumdar and Jessica Olivares, took first place in the paper airplane competition (image below). In addition, team members took home first place in the “Human Foosball” and “puzzleception” events. The Foosball participants included: Jamison S. Soybel, Clarissa M. Wedemeyer, Kush S. Muzumdar, David Gonzalez, Teresa Wu and Nick R. Boardley (image above).

The Here & Now campaign at Louisiana State University (LSU) has profiled Rachel A. Rhodes, LA A 2016. Rhodes is majoring in mechanical engineering at LSU, is a member-at-large candidate from the College of Engineering, and her hometown is Pearland, Texas. Here & Now pulls “together a team of enthusiastic student leaders to help them re-focus the perspective of student government by emphasizing on what can be done today. While working toward the future, they plan to provide students with substantial solutions to the problems they have today.”


The Tau Beta Pi chapter at California State University, Long Beach, California Theta, recently posted to its Facebook page images and videos from recent participation during E-Week.
