What does Recruitment do?

The SWE Recruitment Committee runs three major events/programs: the Buddy Program, the Back-to-School Cookout, and Little Sisters Weekend. We also oversee sign-up for SWE national membership.

We are always looking for more volunteers to help us with these events! If you would like to join the Recruitment Committee or volunteer for these events, please email Amy Xu at

Events & Activites:

Mentoring Program

Want to get to know other freshmen and upperclassman girls in your major?

Join SWE and WIE's Mentoring Program! Through the Mentoring Program, we will pair you with a small group of other SWE members in your major to help with the transition and share experiences. You can earn SWE points by attending the events with your group, and the group with the most points at the end of the semester will win a prize!

This is a great opportunity to really get to know other SWE members and get advice and mentorship!

Sign up form will be available soon!

Little Sisters Weekend

Little Sisters Weekend is an overnight campus visit program hosted by the Society of Women Engineers in the spring. This program is held exclusively for admitted women in engineering to offer them a real on-campus experience. Program attendees are paired up with current engineering undergraduates and gain valuable insight to what it's like to be an engineering student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

The 2017 LSW will be held in the spring, so stay tuned for more information!
