  • Joint Happy Hour with Boeing Branch - November 14, 2016

    On Monday, November 14th, 2016, the ASCE Philly YMF teamed up with the Boeing Branch of ASCE for a joint happy hour at Iron Hill Brewery in Media, PA. There were about 20 attendees that enjoyed happy hour specials until 7 PM and appetizers sponsored by the Boeing Branch. Drexel, Temple, and Widener were all represented by student attendees. The YMF plans the majority of their events within the city, and it’s always nice to get out to a new location and create some new connections. This was the first time that the YMF has collaborated with the Boeing Branch, and we certainly look forward to working together again in the future.

  • Comcast Innovation and Technology Tower Tour - November 9, 2016

    On Wednesday, November 9, 2016, the ASCE YMF attended a construction tour of the Comcast Innovation and Technology Tower. The brand new skyscraper will change the entire skyline of Philadelphia as we know it. The construction tour began with the engineer of record, Thornton Tomasetti, providing a brief presentation about the design tower and the engineering challenges the design team faced. The group then went out to the site and was taken around by the construction management firm, L.F. Driscoll. The group was taken to several levels throughout the building showing different, unique floor designs as the tower went skyward. The group reached a peak on the 44th floor which provided breathtaking views of Philadelphia. Space on the tour was limited so there were about 20-25 people in attendance but many more people showed interest in attending.



  • Adopt-A-Highway Cleanup Event - October 16, 2016

    On Sunday, October 16, 2016, the ASCE and ASHE’s younger member groups teamed up for the 2016 fall Adopt-A-Highway street clean-up. Approximately 15 young engineers and Temple University civil engineering students showed up at the parking lot of Fireside Bar & Grill, received gloves and trash bags, discussed roadside safety, and then began to pick up trash along the two mile stretch of Bethlehem Pike that has been adopted by ASCE and ASHE. After the cleanup, the group enjoyed pizza and wings from Fireside Bar and Grill.



  • Welcome Back Student Bowling Event - October 11, 2016

    On Tuesday, October 11, 2016, the YMF gathered for the annual Welcome Back Student Bowling event. We had great representation from the schools, featuring students from Drexel, Temple, Villanova, and Widener (we're looking at you for next year, Swarthmore!), as well as a good number of younger members mixed in. Everyone had a great time bowling, eating pizza, and just getting to meet one another. Congratulations to Drexel student Volodymyr Babiy who bowled the night's high score with a 145!

  • Group Photo and End of Summer Happy Hour - September 1, 2016

    On Thursday, September 1, 2016, the YMF gathered for their annual group photo, posing with the Ben Franklin Bridge as the backdrop. Following the photo shoot, the YMF proceeded just down the street to Morgan’s Pier to enjoy each other’s company over some appetizers and beverages. It was great to get the YMF together one more time before the unofficial end of summer, as the event saw around 50 attendees.

  • Project Management and Budgets Presentation - August 30, 2016

    On Tuesday, August 30, 2016, the YMF hosted a presentation for prospective Project Managers at The Field House in Center City on what to expect out of leading their first task, managing a budget, producing quality deliverables, and more. The presentation was given by 2013-2014 YMF President Chris Gray, PE, of Timothy Haahs & Associates. It was a well-received, valuable presentation... although the provided appetizers and drink specials may have helped!



  • Bicycle Infrastructure Tour Center City Circuit - August 25, 2016

    On Thursday, August 25, 2016, the YMF hosted a riding tour of the bicycle infrastructure in center city Philadelphia, during rush hour traffic. The event began with a brief discussion of the City’s efforts over the last decade to improve the bike network and setup a bike sharing program, with the goal of making biking safer and more accessible for users of all ages and skill level. The overview was given by the Department of Streets’ Complete Streets Safety Engineer, Gus Scheerbaum, who then also led the group on the tour, pointing out the various types of infrastructure while riding along and using it. Fortunately it was a gorgeous day and the riders enjoyed the perfect weather! After the tour the, the group gathered for a happy hour at Wahoo’s for drinks and bites, with a round of quizzo on Philly’s biking statistics; Mirrycle JelliBell bells and tire patch kits were provided to the 1st & 2nd place winning teams, respectively.

  • Wissahickon Cleanup - August 6, 2016

    On Saturday, August 6, 2016, a group of 15 YMF volunteers cleaned up a section of trail in Philadelphia's Wissahickon Valley Park thanks to the guidance, tools and expertise from the Friends of the Wissahickon. Volunteers enjoyed using a plethora of fun tools and were excited about the opportunity to put their civil engineering skills to use building berms! After clearing the trails, the group headed to Johnny Mañana's in East Falls to refuel with Mexican food. The YMF hopes to work with Friends of the Wissahickon for more events like this in the future.

    On Thursday, July 21, 2016, the YMF hosted its annual Phillies tailgate and game. As usual, the event was very well attended with 126 tickets sold. A great tailgate spread with burgers, dogs, chips, and watermelon was served, and every attendee received a complimentary YMF beverage koozy! The weather was beautiful and it turned out to be Star Wars night (an unexpected surprise). The game could have gone better for the Phillies, but everyone still seemed to have a great time!
