All about Engineering

Officer(s): Stephanie Broden

All About Engineering is a recruitment program that is held every year: We invite women who were newly admitted to the University of Illinois to come to campus for a weekend, and we help them get to know A.O.E. and the university better. In past years we have hosted around 20 girls, with a few of them being out-of-state. This event would not be possible if it weren’t for all the A.O.E. actives that volunteer, host the girls overnight, and help in general throughout the weekend. We look forward to your visit and can’t wait to show you all that the University of Illinois has to offer!
