For the past two years, Lauren has served as Treasurer of the ASCE U-M student organization. She has also been involved with numerous activities including, playing softball, serving in a peer mentorship program at the College of Engineering, and the Chi Epsilon Honor Society. This fall, Lauren will begin the Master’s program in structural engineering.

Through the generosity of ASCE President, Arthur S. Tuttle, a scholarship bequest was established in 1983. The proceeds of the memorial fund are for tuition assistance to students during the first year of graduate studies in Civil Engineering. Scholarship selection is based on appraisal of applicants’ justification, educational plans, academic performance, potential for development, leadership and financial need.

The material sandwiches a thin layer of silver between two “dielectric” materials, aluminum oxide and zinc oxide, producing a conductive anti-reflection coating on the sheet of plastic.
