Auburn's College of Engineering student organizations will host the inaugural Auburn Engineering Short Circuit 5K race on Saturday, Feb. 20, 2010 at 8 a.m. to benefit the student chapter of Engineers Without Borders (EWB). The 3.1 mile campus course will begin on the concourse between the Lowder Business Building and the Shelby Center for Engineering Technology on Magnolia Avenue. Registration is $20 and will begin at 7 a.m. the day of the race. Awards will be given to the top three male and female finishers.

Auburn's EWB chapter plans to visit Quesimpuco, Bolivia, in August to begin work on infrastructure projects that will improve the daily lives of its people. For more information, directions or to volunteer, contact Emily McMenamin at mcmenea@auburn.edu.
