Check out this article written by Region H’s own Kaitlyn Bunker, the FY13 Collegiate Director regarding the importance of graduate student members of SWE.
Here is a brief excerpt from the article:
“All collegiate sections are different, and some even have graduate student committees or groups as a part of their SWE section. Others may have a smaller number of graduate student members that participate within the section – this has been my experience so far. Either way, don’t forget about graduate students! We bring a unique perspective to collegiate SWE sections, and are a crucial piece of the Society as a whole.”
