Some remarkable accomplishments are being racked up by ASCE's Student Chapters and Clubs across the U.S. Among last year's programs, here are some of the more interesting. Profiles of various Chapters and Clubs are included. For example: concrete walkway for wheelchair access to engineering building was planned and constructed by students at University of Nevada at Reno; at West Virginia Institute of Technology, a check was made for thermal pollution at a Union Carbide plant outfall; in Texas, the University at Austin Chapter designed and constructed an infant-parent training center with outdoor recreation facilities for retarded people.
