Beta Tau builds stronger sense of community
Over the past year, the Beta Tau “Builders of Tomorrow” honorary fraternity has increased its service work efforts by 75 percent, according to Purdue chapter president Sarah Ciardi.
A major goal of Beta Tau is to provide Construction Engineering and Management (CEM) students a place to complete construction-related service projects. “We want to give back to the community,” Ciardi says. “We’re very privileged to be at this university, and I think it’s important for us to take our skills and our talents and to put them back into our community.”
Last fall, Beta Tau members volunteered their time and personal tools to build retention walls at Happy Hollow Park. “We were able to use our construction background to ensure that the park would no longer have to deal with erosion problems in those areas,” Ciardi explains.
