Why Did You Join AΩE? I wanted to make a core group of friends freshman year that I could talk to about engineering and social stuff, and everyone in AΩE was friendly and easy to get along with, so I felt right at home.
What Do You Like Most About AΩE? I like that because it’s such a small group of girls, it’s easy to make changes and lead the organization in the direction that you want it to go. We have a good balance of social and professional events, and you’re able to be involved to whatever extent you want.
