Annual Chapter Reports


Early in 1940, under the direction of Professor F. S. Roop, Jr., a petition was presented to the National Council; and on April 24, 1940, the charter for Virginia Tech Upsilon was granted.

Virginia Tech Upsilon keeps very active throughout the year. Letters of congratulation and encouragement are sent to all M. E. Sophomores achieving high scholastic ratings each quarter. A reading room is maintained for students where they may study or read magazines which are provided by the chapter. The chapter has been responsible for the senior composite board since 1944. Virginia Tech Upsilon sponsors a departmental open house each year, a winter student-faculty potluck dinner, and a banquet to honor new initiates and officers in the spring. Chapter members also provide regular help sessions for juniors in Mechanical Engineering courses.
