The ISU section is building upon the momentum of a successful fall semester. We hosted several events to maintain membership and attract new members.
We started the semester with a Kickoff Picnic during the first week of class! Held in the center of the engineering campus, the picnic promoted SWE on campus and recruited new members, especially freshmen. The dinner, sponsored by IBM, allowed SWE students to meet with corporate representatives, socialize with current members, and win prizes.
Prior to the College of Engineering career fair, our corporate relations team gave members the opportunity to hone their professional skills as our job searches began. Members signed up for a 15-minute time slot to meet an industry professional in the college’s interview suites. Mock interviews and resume reviews prepared us for a positive career fair experience.
In October, SWE members traveled to Geisler Farm to enjoy a beautiful afternoon. Members participated in a hayrack ride, played games, and roasted s’mores. This social event gave our section the chance to relax following midterm week.
Our section is preparing for another exciting semester, and we look forward to seeing you at the Region H Conference!
