Two Tau Beta Pi chapters partnered together in January of this year to help with rebuilding efforts after the devastating storms in Tuscaloosa, AL, and New Orleans, LA. The Maryland Beta chapter, at the University of Maryland, and the Alabama Beta chapter, at the University of Alabama, spent their winter breaks cleaning lots, moving trash, and helping build a house through Habitat for Humanity.

MD Beta chapter president, Sean Symon (MD B 2012), recounts “on top of being an opportunity to foster liberal culture by serving the community, this particular service event incorporated engineering aspects as well.” A generous gift from UMD’s A. James Clark School of Engineering helped cover some of the costs associated with the trip.
