Villanova Tau Pi
Villanova, PA 19085
Charter Date April 10, 1958
Chapter No. 65
Advisor Dr. Calvin H. Li
In the fall of 1957, a group of junior and senior students in Mechanical Engineering, inspired by Dean J. Stanley Morehouse, petitioned the National Council for a chapter of Pi Tau Sigma. The active chapters voted favorably so that Villanova Tau Pi Chapter came into existence April 10, 1958. Through the ensuing years Tau Pi Chapter has
enlarged membership and accordingly increased its activity.
With the excellent leadership which has already been apparent on the Villanova campus, the newly formed chapter expects to identify itself with those projects which will stimulate interest in the profession of Mechanical Engineering and cooperation between the faculty and students to produce engineers of the highest quality.
ANNUAL SUMMARY REPORTS
2018-2019 Andrew Lee, President
The Villanova Tau Pi chapter made concerted efforts to give back to the Villanova engineering community during the 2018-19 school year. Our members tutored 15 unique students in classes ranging from Introduction to Engineering to Heat Transfer and Fluid Mechanics. Sessions often lasted over an hour and almost all students requested more than one session. Our members also volunteered in the 2018 Villanova Beetlebot competition, creating brackets, supporting monetary awards, helping teams repair their robots, setting up the battle stage, and even 3D-printing the first-ever Villanova Beetlebot champion trophy. We are excited to welcome 15 new members this year who have demonstrated exceptional academic ability and say goodbye to 15 seniors who will pursue incredible opportunities in graduate school, industry, and more.
