In February, SWE at the University of Utah held a social and general member meeting. We decided to combine the social and meeting so that we could give out important information in a fun an inviting atmosphere. It works to bring together students that are there to meet other women in engineering, with those that want to stay informed and involved.
Since it was in the middle of the semester, we decided that a focus on stress relief was a good theme. We made stress balls, colored, had snacks, and just hung out. If you are looking for a fun and easy activity at a social, we recommend making stress balls. They are really easy to make with just balloons and flour.
Overall we had a great event. We brought together long-time SWE members with new members who were looking for a good time. A stress relief social might be happening every semester for us now since this one was a success.
