The new design features images more prominently and boldly (see the design team pages, for example, Concrete Canoe). It’s higher contrast and more readable. And most importantly, it provides several tools for us to highlight the most important content, for example, through the new sidebar on the left of the screen.
This semester we hosted Phil, the ASCE Foundation’s Philanthropist Hedgehog. We took him with us whenever we went somewhere exciting, some of the highlights were USC Trojans Football Games and various Civil and Environmental Engineering field trips. Since we took Phil everywhere, this post also includes a nice summary of USC ASCE events and events our members were involved this semester. We’re looking forward to the spring semester, when we’ll be getting into full gear in preparation for the Pacific Southwest Conference!

Our board celebrated its last meeting of the semester with a secret santa gift exchange! After everyone opened their gifts, each person had to guess who gave it to them, which was harder than you’d think given the size of our board.
Overall this was a great way to end our semester. A lot of work goes into organizing everything for ASCE and we’ve already started getting ready for an exciting spring semester. Through our weekly 9pm board meetings, as well as working outside of the meetings, our board has put in a terrific effort this semester; none of our events would be possible without everyone’s dedication & commitment to making USC ASCE awesome!
