As you all may know, it’s the time of year for college acceptances to be released!! Every spring, SWE has SWE Welcome, an event to expose newly admitted students to life in the Cal Poly SLO College of Engineering. Through this event, students are introduced to the classes, on-campus clubs, major-related activities, and other fun things to do on campus!

To broadcast this event, SWE calls every female admitted as an engineer to congratulate them and invite them to our Spring SWE Welcome. We are looking for volunteers to help with our Phone-a-thon! It will be taking place on Monday, March 11th, from 6:00-9:00 pm. If you are interested in calling the new admits, please fill out the google form attached below.  Food will also be provided at the Phone-A-Thon to volunteers.
