Outreach-Call for volunteers!
SWE Outreach is looking for volunteers for an upcoming event: The Eco-Princess Festival! This is a fun opportunity to participate in an event that aims to involve children in local community issues, such as sustainability. The festival also encourages the use and development of critical thinking skills and offers an introduction to academic pursuits in science, technology, engineering, math, and design. The event will be held in the Union on Saturday, December 7th from 1 to 5 PM. If you have any questions or you would like to participate, please contact Jessica Stieglitz (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We are excited to invite all of our active members to the Holiday Social! We will be watching a movie, making bracelets and hosting a cookie exchange (bring a plate of cookies to swap with others)! Feel free to dress comfortably in pajamas or sweats! If you have any questions about your membership status (active members have 4+ SWE points) please contact Morgan Kube (email@example.com).
