We hope everyone has had an amazing summer and is geared up and ready for the start of another year! SWE has a lot of amazing things in the works for the upcoming year, and we cannot wait for everyone to get involved.
First up is the activities fair THIS Friday! We are still in need of some volunteers to help us table at the Activities Fair this Friday. Please sign up for 30 minute shifts using the Google Doc sent out in this week’s digest. Volunteers will receive a free “I <3 SWE” shirt to wear during their shift! If you sign up and do not already own a shirt, please email Cheryl at firstname.lastname@example.org with your shirt size. If you did not receive an email with the weekly digest, but would like to, please email Lucy at email@example.com.
Following the activities fair on Friday, SWE will be kicking off the year with our annual dinner to welcome freshmen. All are welcome to come join SWE and the class of 2016! This is a great chance to meet up with all of your favorite SWEeties and to meet all of our newest additions. Meet at the Blackwell Arch directly after the Activities Fair (6:15PM), and everyone will walk over to grab dinner together on Ninth Street. Depending on the size of the group, we’ll split off into two groups for dinner: Elmo’s and Bali Hai.
And last but certainly not least, our first GBM will take place on Monday, September 3 from 6-7PM in Soc Psych 129. Please join us to welcome our new members and meet the newest Executive Board and stay for our annual SWEet Tooth Social where you can stay and meet your SWE Buddy after a long summer! There will be Free Food AND Free T-Shirts! <3
Where is Soc Psych? Soc Psych building is on the main quad. Take a right when facing the chapel and then stay on the right side of the quad. Soc Psych is the last building on the right before the quad dead-ends at the Duke Hospital/Medical School.
The SWE National Conference is just a few months away! This year’s conference will be held November 8th through 10th in Houston, Texas. The conference is a wonderful opportunity to meet fellow SWE members from around the nation, talk to prospective employers, and attend useful and informative workshops and seminars. If you are interested in attending, please email Erinn (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
We’re starting the new school year off hitting the ground running! SWE and BOW are teaming up for a Meet-and-Greet/Networking Lunch for Boston Consulting Group on September 10th from 12-2p at the WaDuke. Stay tuned for more information or contact Izzy (email@example.com) to learn more.
Additional career-related events include a happy hour with Microsoft and workshops for resume writing and interviewing, all culminating in TechConnect and the Fall Career Fair. Check out our calendar here for more details.
