S&T’s recent online chapter meeting provided a first-time opportunity for participation by distance education students, including international initiates Samantha Turner and Ricky Estardo. Turner works for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) in Germany, and Estardo owns a geotechnical engineering company in the Philippines. Both are master’s students in civil engineering.

Chi Epsilon has 141 chapters across the country and has initiated more than 132,000 members. The organization’s vision recognizes students and graduates for their academic achievements while seeking to foster excellence, connectivity and engagement among those in the civil engineering community to improve the world.
