Welcome Future NDSU SWE Members!
A Warm Welcome from the President: Olivia Gravel
Dear Future SWE Member,
Congratulations on becoming a Bison! North Dakota State University is a phenomenal university for engineering and for personal and professional growth. My name is Olivia Gravel, a Junior in Industrial Engineering, and I am the SWE President for the 2017-2018 school year.
The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) is a national non-profit educational and service organization that strives to support and advance women in engineering, science, math and technology as well as develop leaders that make world-changing contributions.
We have an officer board of 7 members that plans technical, social, professional and outreach events every semester. These events help students develop their professional skills, give back to the Fargo-Moorhead community, teach younger students about engineering, and make connections with alumni in industry. In addition, NDSU SWE gives away numerous scholarships every year! For me, SWE has been a huge part of my last 2 years at NDSU. I was nervous to get involved at first but I have made some of my best friends through SWE and we have a blast with whatever we are doing!
I hope this small look into NDSU SWE has you wanting to join! Once the fall semester starts, we will have our first meeting and Pizza Party! Here you can learn more about how to get involved and you can meet our officer board!
I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer and you are getting excited for NDSU and the start of your freshman year! NDSU is great and SWE is a great way to get involved and meet some great girls! If you have any questions about NDSU, SWE, or just want to get in contact with me before the Pizza Party, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm looking forward to meeting you in the fall!
