Alumni and Friends of CEE and GLE- Join us for Mentor Night on Wednesday, April 5, 2017 from 5:30-7:30pm, presented by the UW ASCE Student Chapter and the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering.This event celebrates the newest Civil & Environmental Engineering and Geological Engineering Students and serves as an opportunity to introduce them to the various areas within CEE and GLE through presentations and networking with alumni. This event offers a great opportunity for students to meet practicing engineers as they begin to build their network and seek mentors who can also provide career advice and motivation. After a short program, students will have the opportunity to visit several tables each representing different professional areas, so we encourage you to stay to speak with students in these small groups about your experiences.
