Tau Beta Pi Wins Most Outstanding Chapter

    UCSD’s engineering honor society, Tau Beta Pi, was recently
    presented with the Robert Clayton Matthews Most Outstanding Chapter Award for
    its many service activities and social events.

    Tau Beta Pi continuously strives to bring students together
    and encourages interactions with engineering professors through the
    coordination of both on- and off-campus events. The award is given to one Tau
    Beta Pi chapter out of 232 chapters across the nation, based on the activities
    that the chapters host.

    The UCSD chapter, open to the top eighth of juniors and top
    fifth of seniors at the Jacobs School of Engineering, initiated 94 new members
    and held about 70 events last year, many of which were open to the entire
    campus.

    Its various activities included teaching engineering and science
    fundamentals to 75 fifth-grade students, tutoring fellow UCSD undergraduates,
    cleaning local beaches, cooking a Thanksgiving dinner for a needy local family
    and helping with trail restoration.

    “We were selected not only because we hold many events
    throughout the year but also because of the quality of our events,” Nadia
    Cheng, last year’s Tau Beta Pi
    president, said in a press release.
