Mission Statement: The mission of the Gonzaga University Student Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers is to assist aspiring civil engineering students reach their educational and professional development goals. The Chapter does this by participating in informative projects, technical presentations and project site visits, maintaining an active relationship with the local professional engineering community, and participating in a wide variety of engineering service projects.
Annual Report: Throughout the year, we spent one month focusing on a concentration within the discipline: Structural, Transportation, Environmental, Water Resources, Geotechnical, and Construction. Ten club members attended the Portland Regional Conference in April. We met with over 350 students from other West Coast school to compete in a series of challenges, including an environmental lab, concrete bowling, and a transportation scavenger hunt using Portland’s transit system. Club officers also visited WSU for a tri-chapter ASCE meeting between Gonzaga, Washington State University, and University of Idaho. Throughout the year, we organized field trips, speakers, and service opportunities for all engineering students. We worked closely with the Professional Chapter of ASCE in the Inland Northwest to connect students with successful professionals. With the variety and continuation of events offered, we hope to exceed expectations and provide a model of leadership.
