SWE Fall 2017 banquet
The SWEster who could make the fall banquet had fun reminiscing about the past semester and looking forward to the next. We also had a wonderful potluck and took a few fun photos in the Forestry Building’s Atrium. Which photo should be used if we ever make an album?

General Meeting Fun!
At our most recent general meeting we talked about preparing for Winter Carnival (Feb.7th-11th) and had some fun team bonding exercises! I mean, we ate Oreos, played with Legos and got to be a bit competitive.
SWE sponsored Winter Carnival Queen Candidate!
Our MTU SWE President, Jessica Geroux, ran for Winter Carnival Queen and was part of amazing group of Tech Women that were interviewed, performed a talent, and rocked the Rozsa Center on Saturday night. Thank you to everyone who supported Jessica and the other Queen candidates!
This year’s Winter Carnival theme is “Myths And Tales Of The Past In Our Frigid Forecast.” SWEsters build the statue of Humpty-Dumpty on a snow-brick wall in between the library and Rekhi. We also sold “puppy-chow” in between Dillmand and Fisher Hall. We worked while listening to other site’s music, getting free hot-cocoa, and trying our best to stay warm and dry.
Snowman Left Behind
MTU attempted to break the Guinness World Record for the amount of snowmen built in one hour! Unfortunately the snow was powdery instead of pack-y but we made it work the best we could and also added a few snow angles in between snowmen. Overall it was a beautiful Saturday and a great excuse to play in the snow! Still waiting to hear if we officially broke the record…
What’s Next? – Career Fair!
Our next general meeting is 2/19/2018 at 6-7pm in EERC 100. We will be holding a Career Fair Panel with multiple company reps.
For current students, keep an eye on your email for any Career Fair prep events. They are helpful and usually have a few company representatives volunteering and networking. Have those resumes printed, your business clothes steamed, elevator-speech and handshake practiced, and most importantly, your best self. Good luck and may the jobs be ever in your favor!
