Chico State receives 2018 ACI Excellent University Award

The award uses a points system based on participation in concrete related activities and programs to reward academic institutions. Universities that have earned 12 or more points are recognized as Excellent and those with six to eleven points achieve Outstanding status. This marks the third year Chico State’s chapter has placed, and the first year in the Excellent category.

Points can be earned for the number of students with ACI membership, participation in regional and national concrete competitions, ACI Convention and Committee attendance, community service, student chapter activities, and hosting campus meetings and events.

Chico State's ACI Student Chapter includes more than 25 members and the group is actively involved in community service projects like the playground expansion at Caper Acres and courtyard at Sierra View Elementary School. The chapter also provides professional development and competitions for student members.
