The IWRA and IAHR student chapters sponsor seminars as well as group activities such as sailing and picnics. Students also participate in the annual Engineering Open House (EOH). The chapters historically have had excellent exhibits and usually win two or three awards annually.
In addition to the chapter activities, biannual barbeque events are held in order to facilitate cross-student collaboration and synergistic activities. These events feature cheap, burnt hamburgers as well as high-quality bratwurst. Condiments are provided, participants are only requested to bring something to contribute. Since most people bring chips, you can bring chips as well and then we’ll all clog our arteries eating burnt hamburgers, high-quality bratwurst, and chips.
