AWE Newsletter: Week of 8/23

Dear AWE,

In these unprecedented times, I am more grateful than ever for AWE. I was fortunate to go home and spend many months of shelter-in-place with my family. However, I found myself really missing my college life. I’m thankful that AWE was the one unchanged thing I could depend on. As we start another online semester, I hope you all find support and community in AWE.

Some of my favorite new initiatives have been:

  • the new #bon-awe-petit channel on Slack where people have been showing off their amazing quarantine food creations
  • our AWElumni donut program where you get paired with a new alumni every month
  • the Summer Blog that has cool visualizations about AWE members’ summer experiences. 

We’ve planned a fully online fall semester with new and improved socials, workshops, industry events, mentorship, virtual donuts, recruiting resources, and so much more. You can view (and sync) our entire event schedule on Google Calendar.
