Recurring Tau Beta Pi Events

Bent Shining
You may have seen the symbol of Engineering and Tau Beta Pi's emblem - the bent - proudly displayed outside of Auburn Science & Engineering Center on campus. It's located between the two front entrances facing the Student Union. As with any statue, the bent requires occasional shining and upkeep. Each semester, Tau Beta Pi members meet to shine this important symbol.

Bowling Night
The Student Union's bowling alley has hosted Tau Beta Pi's bowling night for many years now. It is here prospective inductees meet each other and active members alike for a few hours of friendly conversation, pizza and pop, and bowling. Those seeking to join Tau Beta Pi also bring their letters of purpose for review by active Tau Bates - a necessary step in becoming a full member.

Rock Painting

A newer tradition for our chapter, members get together to paint the rock on campus near Crouse Hall.  This is a great way for our new initiates to get to know our current members, and it helps make our chapter more visible on campus.

Career Fair Help
For years now, the College of Engineering's co-op office has helped nearly every student to walk through ASEC's doors in getting co-op experience and full-time jobs after graduation. The office is truly one of Akron students' greatest assets. Each semester, the co-op office hosts a career fair, where many companies come from near and far to recruit new co-ops and employees. In Fall of 2013 alone, over 160 companies came to our campus - and so, every semester, members of Tau Beta Pi come to the career fair to help out the co-op office in setting up and running the event.

Kids' Career Day
Kid’s Career Day is hosted by the Women in Engineering Program and introduces girls in grades 1-6 to non-traditional careers (such as engineering). The kids enjoy several small group hands-on activities that introduce them to careers in engineering, math and science. This is a great opportunity for kids to get involved in the STEM fields early-on. Tau Bates are invited to come and help in any part of the event, from set-up to tear-down.

RePlay for Kids
This event, which is held multiple times every semester, benefits both students and children alike. Students come to the event to fix old or broken toys, usually through wiring modifications. Students obtain soldering skills and practical troubleshooting techniques, and kids get new toys to play with. Some toys are also modified to help kids with disabilities enjoy them - for example, a talking doll only talks when she is squeezed. A button or switch is instead connected to the voice-box, and can be activated much easier with the press of a button. RePlay for kids is a popular event that have many Tau Bates coming back every time the program is hosted at the University.
