This Past Month’s Events

PE Luncheon

ASCE hosted a PE Luncheon on December 7th for those who are anticipating taking the PE test in the upcoming months. Thank you to our speaker, George Hartmann, for coming out to talk about the updates made to the exam and answering all of our questions about the exam, and thank you to our panelists who were also there to answer any questions we had about the exam.

CYCLE Bicycle Build

On December 9th, ASCE helped build bicycles for CYCLE at NRG Center.  CYCLE (Changing Young Children’s Lives through Education) is a charity that rewards students who have met their goals for higher academic performance with a new bicycle!  So far, over 150,000 bicycles have been awarded to students in the Greater Houston Area.  This was a great event and a fun way to spend a Saturday morning!  Thank you to all of our volunteers who participated.

On Wednesday, December 13th, ASCE joined WEAT and TAWWA for the annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Happy Hour! Members from all three organizations showed up dressed to impress. Thank you to all who came out and continue to make this an enjoyable event for everyone!
