Day On Campus

Day on Campus 2019

Our SWE section partners with the College of Engineering’s Admitted Students Preview Day to put on Day on Campus every spring. This is a day long event for admitted students to spend the day with SWE members and learn more about UW-Madison. We also provide an overnight option for students to stay with one of our SWE members the night before. The overnight allows students to learn more about SWE and the campus by getting to know SWE members and other admitted students. This event is a great opportunity for students to explore campus before beginning their freshman year and make connections with current students.

This year’s Day on Campus was held 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. Please look back next Fall for more information on the Spring 2020 Day on Campus event.

Meet the 2019 Day on Campus Event Coordinators!


My name is Lisa Krzyzanowski and I am a 5th year senior studying Chemical Engineering. I am from Waukesha, WI. My first experience with SWE was as a senior in High School when I attended Day on Campus. It was an amazing experience that helped me learn that I was meant to join SWE.




Hello! My name is Heather Huna and I am a senior studying Mechanical Engineering. Outside of school and SWE, I love to draw and paint. I’m also a huge coffee fan and am always up for getting a cup of coffee. This is my second officer position with SWE and I am very excited for Day on Campus!

A Look Back at Day on Campus 2018!

The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s SWE section, in collaboration with UW-Madison’s College of Engineering, hosted the annual Day on Campus event on March 17th, 2018. During this event, admitted women engineering students were invited to attend to learn more about SWE and UW-Madison. Students had the option to stay overnight with a SWE member, the night before the Day on Campus event. This year, we had twenty-four students stay overnight. We ate at our campus dining hall, explored State Street, and watched a movie at a SWE member’s house.

The following day, we had over 60 students attend our Day on Campus. During the day, we held panels for both guests and students. One panel focused on the resources here on campus and the other panel had SWE members share their experiences. We also held a scavenger hunt for the students. The winning team won some SWE-Swag! The students were also given tours of some of our 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 2018 event coordinators, Valya Brady and Ellie Pecore for planning this event!
