Practice Pour Day 2016

Trays and cups of admixture lay undisturbed. The calm before the storm.

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.

Thank you for coming out to our second general meeting of the semester! This meeting covered design team progress to information about PSWC, and picking up of t-shirts. It’s never too late to join a design team. Read more below to learn about the major topics covered in this meeting.

PSWC

This is the conference we prepare all year for! Concrete canoe, steel bridge, environmental, geotech, and more teams compete for the top spot to be considered the #1 student ASCE organization around. This is where we showcase the year’s work and get away from campus for a few days. This year, it is at UC Irvine.

We’ll be hosting an ASCE study day on Tuesday, December 6th! We will snag a room in KAP and get our work done together with snacks in our own secluded space away from the pressures of the library.

There’s a CEE holiday party on Friday, December 9th starting at 6:30pm. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet your classmates and even your professors outside of the classroom setting. RSVP here!
