For all SWE social activities, meet in the Women in EMS Mentor Center. This is also where the SWE office is located. The SWE section is active in Homecoming, Engineering Expo, Women in EMS Career Days, and other university/college sponsored events. The section enjoys collaborating with other student groups and providing outreach to elementary, middle, and high school students.
