ASCE kicked off the semester with our annual Fall Cookout where undergraduates, graduates, and faculty caught up after a long summer over burgers, hotdogs, and cornhole. The cook out allowed for the undergraduates to reflect on their summer internships and share advice about the classes they were taking.
ASCE Steel Day – B&B Welding

Volunteering with Second Chance
On a chilly October Saturday morning, a few undergraduate students headed to Second Chance in downtown Baltimore for a tour and to volunteer a few hours to helping the organization. Second Chance is a non-profit organization that takes apart homes and structures, refurbishes them and resells them. They are set apart by their drive to employ formerly incarcerated individuals and assists them with reentry into society.

ASCE Region 2 Assembly
Junior, Awoenam Mauna-Woanya and Dr. Sangree participated in the Region 2 Assembly held at George Mason University. It was an opportunity to connect with other schools in the area and become familiar with the ASCE leadership. From active workshops to informative panels, the Assembly was an informative event. Next year, the event will be held at Drexel University.
