Meet-a-Civil Engineer Day was a huge success with over 15 professionals and 60 students from Portland State University, Oregon Institute of Technology, University of Portland, Oregon State University, Clackamas Community College, Mt. Hood Community College, and Portland Community College in attendance.

The event consisted of a welcome by the Oregon ASCE and YMF Sections and the presentation of the Byron Jones Awards to a student from each of the four state ASCE student chapters; ASCE student chapter updates from OIT, OSU, UP, and PSU; four technical presentations; a tour of the PSU School of Business remodel and construction; speed networking with local professionals; a viewing of the OPB/ASCE documentary “Unprepared”; and engineering-themed pub trivia at Rogue Hall.
