Engineering Students Win National Steel Bridge Championship
CSU, Chico civil engineering students won the National Steel Bridge Competition held at Texas A&M in May. This is the fourth year the team has advanced to the nationals.
Chico competed against the best forty-three schools, including Penn State, University of Florida, and Texas A&M, from twenty different regional competitions across the nation. Chico's team won the competition by an impressive margin. Oregon State University placed second, and Southern Polytechnic State University placed third.
In July, The Orion, CSU, Chico's student newspaper, was named the nation's best nondaily college newspaper by the National Newspaper Association.
The Orion was awarded first place for general excellence in the NNA's Better Newspapers Contest 2000 for several issues published in 1999. "As a journalist and journalism teacher, I try to be careful not to overstate things," said Dave Waddell, The Orion's faculty adviser. "But stack this important award on top of all of the others we've won, and I have to conclude that no college weekly has done journalism so well for so long."
To increase the number of nurses in Northern California and help alleviate a nursing shortage, the Enloe Foundation has given the School of Nursing about $200,000 to add students to its program.
The funds will allow the school to hire an additional clinical faculty member. With the increased faculty, the school will be able to add twenty students to the program in the 2000-2001 academic year.
