Welcome from the 2020-2021 e-board!

Hello all! This is the 2020-2021 e-board of Tau Beta Pi. We are now in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, but that won’t deter us from our goal to keep our Massachusetts Eta Chapter going with inducting new members, the Bent ceremony, and creating a supportive engineering community. Nice to meet you all!

Here are some personal introductions from our e-board:


Our President is Meghan Griffin (BME):

Hi, my name is Meghan, and I am a senior in biomedical engineering.  I’m really excited to serve as the president of BU’s Tau Beta Pi chapter this year!  Around campus (when there isn’t a pandemic), you can find me helping out with Dean’s Host events, taking full advantage of my Ingalls printer quota, tutoring at the ERC, and ordering sugary beverages from Starbucks.  In my spare time, I love to read, do yoga, and ride and show my Quarter Horse. 


Our Vice-President is Sadie Allen (CE):

Hello, my name is Sadie and I am a senior studying computer engineering and mathematics. I love singing and making music and I am involved in Chordially Yours, one of BU’s all-female a cappella groups. When I am at school I spend a lot of time running on the Esplanade and studying at Pavement, croissant in hand. I am so happy to be serving on E-Board for Tau Beta Pi this year! 



Our Treasurer is Daniel Bradford (MechE):

Hey everyone, my name is Daniel and I am a senior studying Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Math. I will be serving as TBP’s Treasurer for the 2020-21 academic year! When I’m not in class, you can find me at FitRec training and competing with BU’s Men’s Swim Team, crushing plates in the West Campus dining hall, and consuming large quantities of Dunkin cold brew. My interests include aerospace, 3D printing, and long naps.

Our Historian is Ben Chan (CE):

Hi, my name is Ben Chan, and I’m a rising senior majoring in computer engineering. When I’m on campus, you can find me getting coffee at Starbucks, studying in photonics, or walking around the BU beach. In my spare time, I enjoy sailing and watching Netflix. I’m looking forward to serving on the E-board this year!  


Our Secretary is Leen Arnaout (BME):

Hi all! I’m Leen, a senior in biomedical engineering with a minor in electrical engineering. I enjoy hiking, fiddling around with Arduinos, or conjecturing up new bioinformatics experiments. If I’m not playing Kendo (Japanese Fencing), I could be found hopping between Boston’s many cafes, working towards my mission of visiting every single T and Commuter Rail stop in Massachusetts, or huddled up with my little cat, Beans. So excited to serve on the e-board for TBP this year!


By Tau Beta Pi

Tau Beta Pi had its first member initiated in 1885. It is the oldest engineering honor society and the second oldest university level honor society in the United States. Since then it has grown to include 244 collegiate chapters across the US and Puerto Rico. The chapter at Boston University was founded in 1975 and is designated the Massachusetts Eta chapter.

As officers of the 2013-2014 school year, we aim to make Tau Beta Pi more active in the BU ENG community.
