Section Spotlight: University of Louisville hosts Haiti Day

On Sunday, January 31st, the University of Louisville hosted Haiti Day on their campus.  To help raise money for those  affected by the recent earthquakes in Haiti, UofL’s SWE chapter hosted a “Pie an Engineer” booth where students could pie an engineer for a dollar.  The idea was a huge success, and many students chose to pie various staff and students for well over a dollar a pie.  With less than $30 worth of supplies, SWE’s booth alone raised over $225 that will be donated to the Clinton-Bush Haiti fund to bring relief in Haiti.  The event as a whole totaled near $1000 in monetary donations as well as bags and boxes of medial, hygiene, and clothing donations.  Go Women Engineers!
