On the weekend of April 10-11th the Lafayette College Chapter of AIChE sent seven students to the AIChE Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference at the University of Maryland, College Park. Students attended/participated in professional workshops, poster sessions, information sessions, presentations, the annual ChemE Car Competition and many social events.
Hayden Jarboe ’16, Michael Meshberg ’16 and Danielle Ricciardi ’17 represented the Lafayette College AIChE leadership at the annual Chapter Presidents Meeting. They each made connections with Presidents from many other schools in the Mid-Atlantic Region. The executive board was also represented by AIChE Advisor and Professor, Michael Senra. Professor Senra was a judge in the ChemE Car Competition.
Other members of the Lafayette College AIChE chapter who attended the conference include Rachel Elias ’17, Yehou Gnopo ’15, Long Nguyen ’15 and Christopher Verni ’15.
