Annual crawfish boil set to help PETSM students attend conference

THIBODAUX, La. — The Nicholls Department of Petroleum Engineering Technology and Safety Management invites you to campus next week to eat 900 pounds of crawfish to help its students.


The American Society of Safety Engineers Bayou Chapter will host its annual all-you-can-eat crawfish boil starting at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 10, at the Colonel Soccer Complex. Proceeds from the event go to the Nicholls ASSE chapter to help pay for students to attend the premier ASSE Safety Technical Conference from June 3-6 in San Antonio.

“Students will be able to learn about the industry, see the latest technology and also network, as the conference has young professional and social events,” said Michael Gautreaux, PETSM executive director.
