Welcome Back BBQ
Each year the Colorado School of Mines SWE section hosts a welcome back barbecue the first weekend of school. The barbecue is intended to introduce new women students to our SWE section. The informal setting enables students to mingle with each other, Xcel engineers, and staff. Xcel Energy sponsors the event each year, and are supportive advocates of our SWE section. We hope to continue this partnership for many years to come, and encourage more women on campus to join the great community that is SWE!
The Welcome Back Barbecue will be held Saturday, August 29th from 5-7 PM in Kafadar Commons. Unfortunately, because of restrictions due to COVID-19, we must limit the amount of guests allowed to attend, so we will only be allowing freshmen to attend the event this year. Please RSVP via this link as spots to attend are first-come-first-serve. This is a great way to learn about the events SWE will be doing throughout the year and to meet other incoming freshmen. Entrance to the BBQ will NOT be allowed without a mask. We will have food, raffles, and cool prizes!
“I love the Welcome Back BBQ! It is a great way to get to know both new and old students and connect with the club as a whole! This is one of my favorite events that SWE puts on. Also the food is always fantastic!”
