Student Recognitions, May 2015

Lauren Bailey, NY K 2015, was among four students at the University of Rochester that was profiled as a graduating member of the class of 2015 for “making their mark and making the most of their collegiate experience.” Bailey is graduating with a degree in chemical engineering and has been a prolific swimmer during her time at Rochester. She was named the women’s Liberty League Swimmer of the Year for three straight years, winning four individual events and playing a key role as the team won its sixth straight league championship in December. She set University records for the 100 butterfly, 200 butterfly, 200 freestyle, 200 individual medley and is a part of all the record- holding relay teams. Read the article for more information on Bailey, who will start her career at IBM this August in the field of manufacturing semiconductors.


At the end of each academic semester, the Arizona State University’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering recognize high-achieving and exemplary graduating students. “Several of these students are selected as Distinguished Graduates, honored primarily for their significant contributions and accomplishments beyond the classroom.” This spring semester eleven Distinguished Graduates have been selected. (See the full list here.) Below are the two Tau Beta Pi members that were recognized:

Alex M. Arveson – (AZ B 2015) civil engineering major, lead a student-team in developing a community app, and will pursue a master’s degree
Jessica H. Schiltz – (AZ B 2015) bioengineering major, Project C.U.R.E. founder, will pursue Ph.D. at the University of Notre Dame


The San Diego State University NewsCenter recently highlighted the “2015 Student Standouts” of this year’s graduating class. Several are Tau Beta Pi members, including:

Megan B. Lacy – (CA X 2015) mechanical engineering graduate, former president of local SWE chapter, and will pursue master’s degree
Kent M. Kurashima – (CA X 2015) mechanical engineering graduate, research in solar simulator lab, and will attend Univ. of Colorado, Boulder for Ph.D.
Jeff T. Erickson – (CA X 2015) aerospace engineering major, treasurer of TBP CA Xi Chapter, and mathematics minor
Jastine J. Ortiz – (CA X 2015) aerospace engineering major, vice president of TBP CA Xi Chapter, and was selected for the NASA California Space Grant Consortium Summer Internship
