Cooper Union Initiates, Cirque Mechanics at UW, & UT-Austin Volunteers Sort Trash (Nov. 2018)

Afshin Y. Khan, NY I 2019, recently posted an image to the Tau Beta Pi District 2 Facebook page. He welcomed the group of 14 new initiates after their initiation on Thursday, November 1, at The Cooper Union School of Engineering.


According to a news release from the University of Wyoming, the Cirque Mechanics’ “42 Feet: A Menagerie of Mechanical Marvels,” a performance that combines circus and mechanics will be staged on Friday, November 2, in the University’s College of Arts and Sciences auditorium.

A free pre-performance workshop took place on Thursday, November 1. The event was co-sponsored by the WY Alpha Chapter of Tau Beta Pi.


The Daily Texan, of the University of Texas at Austin, reported on student organizations partnering with the Sustainability Sort Squad to sort trash on Sundays after football games. The volunteer opportunity also serves as a fundraiser because organizations can earn money based on the number of volunteers they bring to sort trash.

The TX Alpha Chapter vice president Desi C. Friesenhahn, TX A 2018, was quoted in the article. The TX Alpha Chapter has already sorted trash once this semester and plans to participate in this weekend’s cleanup as well. Click here to read the article for more details.
