Why did you decide to join the SWE blog?
Kaitlyn: I think it'll be a good way to talk about things not necessarily engineering/school-related and share them with our SWE members!
Yee Lee: I initiated the system, and can’t wait to see how it turns out!
Annisya: I joined the SWE blog because it gives me a positive creative outlet to destress from schoolwork, and I get the opportunity to be more involved in SWE!
Keri: I really like graphic design and video editing so I wanted to apply that skill to SWE
Jessie: I think its great way to allow your voice to be heard within SWE and a nice outlet to destress outside of school.
Be sure to be on the lookout for all the great topics our blog will cover this upcoming school year. A quick preview to what’s to come includes, fun things to do around Austin, study tips, and graduate school. If you are interested in joining the SWE blog or vlog team it’s not too late!
