University of Idaho ASCE Fundraising Opportunity

The University of Idaho student chapter of ASCE is fundraising  to help the club pay for concrete canoe and steel bridge materials, symposium registration fees, travel and lodging and other ASCE related expenditures. The student chapter strives to maintain zero costs to students to encourage participation and to remove any barriers to entry. If you are interested and have any questions regarding ASCE at UI, please feel free to reach out to Gabe Brandt, ASCE President, [email protected]

Gonzaga ASCE Fundraising Opportunity

The Gonzaga University American Society of Civil Engineering (ASCE) Student Chapter is hard at work at designing and building their concrete canoe for the Pacific Northwest Student Symposium on April 5-6 at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, CA. The canoe has been built, and is currently being prepped for finishing.  To participate in this year’s competition, funds ($5000) are needed to complete the canoe for competition and for 20 students to travel to and from the competition (lodging, transportation, conference registration, etc.). Gonzaga ASCE is looking for donations to help cover these costs.  Your assistance will continue to create a community where civil engineering students at Gonzaga can be exposed to educational and professional activities that will advance them in their careers. These events will not be possible without your help and we hope that you will support us in achieving our goals!
