New Member Committee

What is the New Member Committee?

Whether it’s trivia night or an ice cream social, the New Member Committee aims to create a welcoming environment within SWE and provide the opportunity for members to socialize through monthly events throughout the semester!

What is Engineering Expo?

Along with monthly events, we also create an exhibit every spring for Engineering Expo! Expo is the College of Engineering’s annual showcase of all things science and engineering. Students from elementary to high school visit UW-Madison and experience a whole day of STEM. Some of our previous exhibit activities include cardboard rovers, Makey-Makey inventions, DIY Slime, and gravity-defying paperclips!

To see the virtual 2021 Engineering Expo check out the official Engineering EXPO page or their YouTube Channel to see our videos!

Upcoming Events

Stay tuned for upcoming events this spring! Check our calendar for more details.

Meet the Spring 2021 New Member Committee Chair!

Helena Gassmann

Hi! My name is Helena Gassmann, and I’m a junior studying mechanical engineering. You’ll most likely find me cooking, watching She-Ra, or making yet another Spotify playlist. Being a part of New Member Committee has made me feel so welcome, and I hope to continue that type of environment as the NMC Officer! I am excited to meet all of you!
