Mentoring Family Info:
Each semester, SWE’s Mentoring officers create teams of students with similar majors. Each mentoring team consists of a mixture of underclassmen and upperclassmen giving students the opportunity to connect with other SWE members in their major and to receive advice about classes, research opportunities, major specific clubs, and more. There is also a 1:1 mentoring program that matches interested underclassman with an upperclassman in order to give them an opportunity to foster a more personal relationship with someone in the same major.
Meet the 2019-20 Mentoring Co-Chairs!
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! Any spare time I have, I usually spend watching Netflix, reading or exploring campus (if weather permits)!
I am a junior studying Environmental Science with minors in French and Engineering for Energy Sustainability. I work part-time on campus as a lab assistant in the Wisconsin Institutes for Medical Research, though I hope to join the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center this fall. I write for a student-run publication on campus called the Journal for Undergraduate Science and Technology (JUST) that is published bi-annually in print and online. 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!
As a part of SWE Week, Mentoring Committee is kicked off the semester with a workshop led by the Adventure Learning Programs (ALPS)! Students met other students in their major through icebreakers, problem solving initiatives, trust activities, and more
