The word “engineering” brings to mind a variety of images. Some people think of buildings and bridges, others robots, still others laboratories full of beakers and Petri dishes. For most people, engineering doesn’t conjure up images of soccer balls or lacrosse sticks. Most people, though, haven’t met the Rowan University College of Engineering’s outstanding student-athletes. These students, said Dr. Jennifer Kadlowec, associate professor of mechanical engineering, are “at the top of their sports and at the top of their class.”

Busy people, it’s said, get things done. Perhaps that explains William Wilkins’ success. Recently, the prestigious engineering honor society Tau Beta Pi awarded Wilkins, a 20-year-old Rowan University junior chemical engineering major from Ocean City, a $2,000 scholarship for the 2011-2012 academic year, making him one of only 158 class-of-2012 recipients nationwide.

Three programs produced by staff members at Rowan Radio 89.7 WGLS-FM have received awards from the Garden State Journalists Association (GSJA) as part of its 2011 regional competition.
