This October, we went to the SWE Conference in Baltimore, MD. The Career fair was great, as well as the sessions. The session on “Imposter Session” was one of our favorites. It was a very valuable experience. Here’s a picture of some of the group. It’s not complete, as some of our members were interviewing during this time!
For our October SWE Meeting, we got ready for the Conference, then made some Candy Bridges and had a contest for who’s bridge was the strongest- it was a lot of fun and a great success.
If you were unable to make the first SWE meeting, here is a recap of what we went over. We discussed the National Conference with Loyola’s SWE Councilor, who was our guest speaker at the meeting. We also discussed upcoming events for this year such as fundraisers and community service that we can participant in. For more details on the National Conference please e-mail Megan Gansfuss at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Society of Women Engineers is getting ready for a new year, planned with new activities & events. If you have any suggestions, or if there are any events you would like to see this year, let us know!
Thank you to everyone who helped out at the flower sale! We sold out an hour before closing, and it was a great success. Our profit will be very helpful towards enriching our meetings as well as hoping cutting the cost of the SWE Conference next fall! Thank you very much to everyone who helped prepare the flowers, sold the flowers, and most of all those who bought flowers and supported us. Happy Valentine’s Day!
