Day On Campus

SWE 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. SWE also provides 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.

More information about Day on Campus in spring 2020 will be available in the fall.

Aislen Kelly

I am a junior studying Environmental Science with minors in French and Engineering for Energy Sustainability. During the summer, I worked as an engineering intern at Aqua-Aerobic Systems, Inc. in which I conducted a study on biological nutrient removal systems within sequencing batch reactors by way of structure manipulation.

I was drawn to UW-Madison by the caliber of research and the many other accolades it has as an academic institution—as well as by its strong sense of community. I’m excited to begin my junior year as an officer with SWE, an organization I’ve known about and admired since high school, and look forward to what the semester will bring!

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)!

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 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!
