Highlander Day is an event for incoming students to learn about the school. Students who have been accepted to UCR are invited for a day of information and fun! This event is important to the school to retain students for enrollment. Our role was to table for the Bourns College of Engineering. Multiple professional student organizations talked about their purpose and benefits. We enjoyed talking about what we personally have gained from our involvement in SWE. We talked about why diversity is important in engineering, what events we have gone to or planned, what other benefits we offered. Three of our incoming officers attended which made it extra special! We got over two pages of sign ups and met all kinds of women engineering students. We have added them to our contact list for next quarter and look forward to having them be part of SWE!
