Virginia Tech's Student Engineers' Council Contributes
November 14, 2007

If a student organization were allowed to become a member of the Ut Prosim Society at Virginia Tech, Virginia Tech’s Student Engineers’ Council would be well on its way to becoming a member at the level of the President’s Inner Circle, comprised of the donors who surpass the $1 million mark.

In the past eight years, the Student Engineers’ Council has contributed more than $400,000 in support of the College of Engineering’s undergraduate programs. In addition, it supports three endowed scholarships, and has returned tens of thousands of dollars to individual engineering student societies to support travel to conferences, hosting of national meetings, and inventory for design projects.

The College of Engineering recently recognized the Student Engineers’ Council for a gift it made several years ago to make technology upgrades to engineering classrooms. The renovation project of Room 209 Randolph Hall was completed in the spring of 2007.

In addition, in 2007, the council announced the creation of a new $105,000 endowment to support the nationally and internationally acclaimed engineering student design teams in the college. The council’s goal is have this endowment reach $500,000 by 2010. The Student Engineers’ Council’s goal is to add to this account each year to become a dependable source of revenue for the design teams.

In 2006 the National Association of Engineering Student Councils (NAESC) named Virginia Tech’s Student Engineers’ Council the most philanthropic organization of its kind in the nation for the second time in five years.
