OSU’s academic clubs are representing us well all over the nation! Hard work is paying off, and the judges are not the only ones noticing.

The OSU Beaver Racing Baja team came in 2nd at a competition in Auburn, AL, challenging 100 teams from the United States, Canada, Mexico and India. Along with second place the Baja Racing team also earned a number of top honors, trophies, and best of all, $3250 dollars!

ASME stole the show at the Student Design Competition during the “Look Ma, No Hands” event, which tasked teams to build alternative energy source vehicles and racing them on a 12 meter track.

The bridge team took 5th overall while participating in the ASCE PNW Student Conference during the steel bridge competition!

The OSU canoe team will be cruising past the competition as they sealed the deal to compete at nationals in Reno, Nevada. Winning first place overall, the team ranked in top spots in multiple races for men’s, women’s and co-ed categories. Even when the boat suffered damage from a wave, duct tape came to the rescue. The boat was temporarily fixed and the team still won!

Congratulations to all those who participated and a thank you to all who went to support! Go Beavs!
