Civil engi­neering seniors Sarah Casey (third from left) and Kath­leen Keen (second from right) watch along with other stu­dents as gin­ger­bread houses are tested on an earthquake-​​simulating shake table as part of a stu­dent com­pe­ti­tion on Wednesday. The lab run by Mishac Yegian, Dis­tin­guished Pro­fessor of Engi­neering, served as the com­pe­ti­tion site. The event was orga­nized by the North­eastern chapter of the Amer­ican Society of Civil Engineers.
