Welcome to the UWP Chapter of Chi Epsilon!
Purpose: Chi Epsilon is “dedicated to the purpose of maintaining and promoting the status of civil engineering as
an ideal profession.”
Chapter Stats: Platteville is the 77th chapter out of a total 130 chapters nationwide, gaining its membership in 1971.
Motto: Chi Epsilon’s motto is “Conception, Design, Construction”, which comes from the letters of Chi Delta Chi, one
