This year’s ASCE Student Chapter Report was again ranked in the top third amongst all other student groups, and we aim to maintain that level of achievement going foward.
Pour Day! Where both canoes and friendships are meticulously crafted and the inevitable opportunity to separate fibers is ever present. This year, USC ASCE set forth their vision to create this year’s canoe. Inspired by the beauty of nature as well as what the struggles overcome, the team chose Ascent as this year’s theme.
From dry mixing those elusive glass bubbles to placing concrete mix batch #18, there were plenty of tasks to go around. As usual, the always on-point canoe playlist was blaring throughout the corridors of KAP basement. For some, it was their final pour day, for others, a new fascination with concrete canoes emerged.

This year, the Workshop for Student Chapter Leaders (WSCL) was held right here in Los Angeles. At only a couple miles away, the USC ASCE student chapter took the conference head-on.
Students were able to attend various seminars ranging from how to get results from a meeting to finding an internship. Furthermore, attendees were also given multiple opportunities to network with Younger Members, Regional Directors and other students as well. From focus sessions geared toward specific chapter problems to messages from the current president elect, Kristina Swallow, and future president elect nominees, there were few chances to catch a break.
In addition to the main events that the conference offered, there were additional opportunities to take advantage of such as the Dream Big Premiere and the LA YMF dinner on top of city hall.
Overall, this conference was a wonderful experience for networking with members from all around the country, and it was also an amazing event to gain knowledge on how to run your student chapter more efficiently.
Numerous student members attended the annual department CEE Holiday Party on December 9th. From professors and deans to undergraduates and graduates, a warming festive experience concluded the Fall Semester on a positive note. Additional pictures can be found here!
As the Fall Semester drew to a close, so did the first half of preparing for concrete canoe. Members, new and old, spent the day learning how to measure, mix, and place in preparation for the real deal later in January. It is always good to put new ideas to the test before committing to the full project so crucial tests can be performed and adjustments can be made. All the contributions made on Practice Pour Day defined how the actual run will progress on January 28.
