A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
William Rust (B.S. Mechanical Engineering '24)
It is an honor to be a part of this chapter of Theta Tau, let alone lead it. Our community has such diverse backgrounds, but we all share a common purpose: personal and communal growth. In my time in Theta Tau, I have grown to the professional and academic level of my peers, while also becoming an important part of a close community that values friendship and service.

WHAT WE VALUE
Since our foundation, we’ve been proud to attract and welcome smart, caring, and innovative leaders who are dedicated to giving back to the community, developing the best versions of their professional selves, and creating meaningful bonds with each other.
Theta Tau at UMD strives to improve not only the University of Maryland but the surrounding DC Metro area as well. Over the past few years, the chapter has raised over $15,000 for the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), facilitated the INOVA blood drive at UMD, served with Habitat for Humanity in Flagler Beach, FL, among countless other drives, fundraisers, and community cleanup events.
Throughout the year, we serve not only our members but the greater Clark School community by hosting information sessions, resume critiques, interview prep, alumni networking events, and presentations on a variety of topics. Professional development is based in personal development, so Theta Tau provides critical opportunities for current and former members to assist each other in finding and following their own paths to impact change within the greater field of engineering and social good.
Beyond our community outreach and professional development opportunities, we are a family of highly involved, fun-loving, and adventurous engineers. While engineering can be difficult or mentally taxing, we form lasting bonds and friendships to create a supportive community to make the University of Maryland feel a little bit smaller.
