Hopefully everyone's finals went well or are going well! We hope everyone has a great summer, wherever you spend it! Good luck with any internships or summer classes. As noted previously, there are several social gatherings that are happening over the summer. These include traveling to Nationals at the University of Illinois, our camping trip, as well as spontaneous summer kickball and possibly other social events. Check the Facebook page for more frequent updates.
If any incoming engineers want to visit and see the canoe during SOAR or any other event, feel free to email one of the co-chairs!
