Welcome to the new University of Akron SWE Website!

Posted by uakronswe on September 2, 2010

Welcome to the new website for the University of Akron Society of Women Engineers Section!  We have had many issues in the past with developing HTML content for the University to put on our old website, so we have moved to using a WordPress site, with the goal of making information easier for you to access and more up-to-date!

If you have any suggestions for our new site, please email your comments to me, and Iwill encorporate your suggestions into the site as soon as possible!

Join SWE this Wednesday, January 19th from 11-12 in Schrank Hall South 145 for the first meeting of the new semester! Learn about the upcoming retreat, SWE scholarships, regional positions, the regional conference, WIE updates, and Relay for Life. As always, food will be provided but remember to bring your own drink. (Check it out on Facebook)

Also, the Spring 2011 Planning Retreat is this Friday, January 21st from 5:30-8:30pm and Saturday, January 22nd from 9am-Noon in ASEC 223/224. It’s not mandatory to attend both days. If you can only come to one of the portions that would still be great – just let Nicole Averell (nma14) know by Thursday at noon. Dinner on Friday and breakfast on Saturday will be provided, just remember to bring your own drink, as usual. Come to the retreat and plan activities, speakers, events, etc. and have tons of fun!
