The U-M Chapter of Chi Epsilon, the Civil and Environmental Engineering Honor Society, initiated 10 new members on Friday, April 7.
To be invited, students must first be declared as a Civil or Environmental Engineering major. Then, they must have a minimum GPA of 3.5 and need to be in the upper 1/3 of junior and senior CEE classes. (Class standing is determined by credit hour, so the society often initiates sophomores who enter with high school transfer credit.)
Congratulations to the following students: Anna Bezwada, Kendall Biggs, Alana Boelter, Mackenna Burkholder, Anders Ekstrom, Mary Hess, Joseph Kanny, Yolanda Ming, Julien Nyberg and Karina Otten.
Chi Epsilon was established at UM in 1949 as the 25th chapter to join the society, with the goal of developing civil and environmental engineering students with the attributes necessary for a successful engineering career: scholarship, character, practicality and sociability.
