Besides having socials with food (which is always a guarantee to get college students to attend) it is important to do physical activities together. We often don’t find time to exercise in what little free time we have as engineers, but exercising is important for our physical and mental health. So try to include some physical activities in the rotation this year, like University of California, Riverside (UCR) did!
SWE @ UCR is known for being one of the more upbeat and social engineering organizations on campus. We kicked off the year with our annual ice cream social where students are able to mingle with new students, graduate students, and even professors. Our second social event that we had this year is our rock climbing social. We gathered up our swe members and brought them to our rock climbing wall outside of the recreation center to enjoy some free rock climbing fun! It was the first time that a lot of our members went rock climbing and it was a great experience for all. We cheered each other on, encouraged each other, and we were able to create new bonds and relationships.At the end of the event, we all agreed that we were not prepared to expend so much energy rock climbing!
