Cider Pressing with Dr. Hein

Fall is in the air! We had a huge turnout at Dr. Hein’s this afternoon! She graciously invited us out to her farm for our annual cider pressing.

We got to visit with all her adorable alpaca…




And we even got to feed them, along with the sheep and chickens!feeding the animals


Here is the old school cider press we used to press our delicious cider…cider press

It was a lot of hard work, but thanks to everyone’s enthusiastic effort, we pressed tons of cider and got to bring home some for ourselves. everyone pressing cider

Thank you Dr. Hein for having us out this weekend. We all had a fantastic time and are looking forward to this event next year!

We even helped out Tech and got some points for the Outdoor Nation Challenge!

Get Networking!

Once again we had a very successful Evening with Industry this year!

For those of you that don’t know, every year before the Fall Career Fair, our section hosts a fantastic networking event and dinner where students can mingle with companies of their choice and make great connections!

Hopefully many students were able to network well and land a job with the company of their dreams!

A huge thank you to Britta Anderson and Erika Poli for organizing the event, and all other SWE members who volunteered to make the night a success.
