Students in the Society of Automotive Engineers (pictured above) held the NYIT chapter's first car show on April 27 at the Old Westbury campus. The show drew nearly 200 attendees with 30 vehicles on display, including an electric Tesla car driven by astronaut Greg Olsen (pictured below). Students donated $311 in event proceeds to the Wounded Warrior Project, an organization dedicated to providing resources for and raising awareness of the needs of wounded U.S. veterans and service members.
"This event was a great opportunity for the NYIT community to gather together with a common interest to share stories and network while also giving back to a great cause and charity," says Anthony Reyes, president of NYIT's SAE chapter.
