Back to School, Back to SWE

Well it’s already the middle September.  Chances are you are already back in school or perhaps starting a semester long co-op.  Classes and student organizations are picking up where they left off in the spring and that includes SWE!

The start of a new school year is a great time for new and returning students to learn about student organizations and find opportunities on campus that support their future.

The beginning of the fall semester is a great time to inform others about the many benefits of being an active SWE member.  There are many opportunites in SWE for members to grow professionally by taking on leadership roles, participating in community outreach events, networking with professionals, and making friends outside of class.  SWE is a great way to meet other students outside of your major too.

In addition to all of the great life long skills that can be acquired through involvement in SWE, SWE offers over $500,000 in scholarships each year!  The opportunities are nearly endless with SWE.

Already involved in SWE?  Bring a friend to your next general meeting or social event.  Show them how SWEet SWE is!

If you have two or more years remaining as a collegiate I highly suggest taking advantage of the Collegiate to Career (C2C) membership.  Rather than paying $20 to renew your membership each year, the C2C membership is a onetime membership fee of $50 that covers your entire collegiate career as well as your first year as a professional SWE member!

Are you a member of AISES, NSBE, or SHPE?  Well you can join SWE and either the either the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES), the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), or the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) at a single, discounted rate.

To learn more about your membership options as a collegiate, please check out the SWE membership website.

It’s a new school year and a new year in SWE.  Make the most out your academic year by becoming or staying involved in SWE to balance out time spent on school work.  Most of all, have fun and enjoy the beginning of your fall semester!
