††††† The location is a creek
corridor that needs a litter clean up badly. It is
located on Mill Creek Drive, just North of
Pioneer. It is a short, dead end street off Mill Creek.
†††††† Here is the map link.
You can park along the street, just
donít block any drive ways. City Park staff will meet you there. At the dead
end barricade, you can walk down the trails West bound to Johnson Creek.
We really think this will be a better impact for the
environment to remove this trash, than previous locations.

standards, Tau Beta Pi encourages all students to strive for academic
excellence, and it holds up as models of professional excellence those few

Exemplary Character: The second
eligibility requirement for Tau Beta Pi is good character. A Tau Bate has
personal integrity, a wide range of interests, adaptability, and participates
unselfishly in community and volunteer activities.

seniors, and graduate students from the engineering department. The
engineering department builds the list based on GPA. Letters are sent to the

achievement. Lists of the eligible candidates are also posted around Nedderman Hall and Woolf Hall as well as on this website.
Candidates wishing to join the Eta chapter must then prove their characters
by participating in activities and attending events as described by the
induction requirements set by the chapter officers each semester.

engineering students and professionals and encouraging the interest of
