Epsilon Pi Tau ceremony inducts new members


An Epsilon Pi Tau induction ceremony was conducted in the College of Technology, Architecture, and Applied Engineering at Bowling Green State University on December 8. The induction ceremony includes a unique ritual that has been a long-standing tradition. It serves to honor and unify individuals in the technology professions and is a tribute to the quality, imagination, and foresight of its originators and past leaders.

Epsilon Pi Tau has been headquartered at the college since 1976 under the then founding dean of the college, Dr. Jerry Streichler. There have been 134 international chapters chartered since 1929.
