Day On Campus

About Day on Campus:

The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) partners with the College of Engineering’s Admitted Students Preview Day, the Diversity Affairs Office, the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, and the National Society of Black Engineers to put on Day on Campus every spring. This event allows admitted students to spend time with SWE members, explore the UW-Madison campus, and learn more about many resources that are available for students.  This is a great opportunity for students to explore campus before beginning their freshman year and make connections with current students.

Ritika Shah

Hey! My name is Ritika Shah, and I am a sophomore studying Chemical Engineering and Economics. I have been part of SWE since freshman year and have really enjoyed being involved with the group. I am excited about being an officer this year and hope to plan some fun events as the Mentoring Co-Chair! Any spare time I have, I usually spend watching Netflix, reading or exploring campus (if weather permits)!

Zoe Zanella

Hello! My name is Zoe Zanella and I am the Mentoring Co-Chair.  I am a Sophomore studying Biochemistry & Human Development and Family Studies with hopes of attending medical school.  You can most likely find me attending SWE events and studying, but I also love shopping on State Street with my roommates. I am so excited for another semester as a SWE officer!


Day on Campus 2019 Officers

A Look Back at Day on Campus 2019!

Over 60 students attended Day on Campus 2019 on Saturday, April 13th. Admitted students had the opportunity to stay overnight on Friday, April 12th with a current female student in engineering at UW-Madison.

During the day, guests and students attended panels focused on campus resources and they listened to SWE members share their college experiences. We also held a scavenger hunt for the students with the winning team taking home some SWE-Swag! Additionally, the students were given tours of some of the many lab spaces at UW-Madison.

We are happy with the success of the event this year, and cannot wait to see what is in store for next year! Thank you to our DOC 2019 event coordinators, Lisa and Heather, for planning this event!
