Valparaiso University, Mu Rho Chapter
The Mu Rho chapter of Eta Kappa Nu was founded at Valparaiso University by 23 Electrical and Computer Engineering students on April 28, 2018. The founding president was Janelle Wigal, and the founding advisor was Doug Tougaw. The charter ceremony was conducted by IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu President, Dr. Steve E. Watkins.
The host department is located in the Gellersen Engineering and Mathematics Center. Although the Mu Rho chapter is still relatively new, it is very active. The members and officers have been busy planning a variety of events; from a Chili Cook-off event to help members de-stress during finals, to monthly speaker series where professors host 20-30 minute lectures about their research interests, the Mu Rho chapter has been busy making a name for themselves both in the college of engineering and on campus. The chapter holds two induction ceremonies per year, one in the fall and another in the spring and is excited to continue growing and improving the chapter.
