Students who join Engineers Without Borders will help in-need communities with projects in places like Guatemala and Panama.
Third year Civil Engineering major Gillian Johnson says students who join Engineers Without Borders will help in-need communities with projects in places like Guatemala and Panama.
Johnson said, “They can go on trips, they can help with fundraisers. We’re actually looking to go on another assessment trip in January for our Panama team, so, if they join the team, they can definitely get involved with that and maybe go on the trip.”
