Section Spotlight – Ohio State University: Fall 2011 SWE Socials

Post Written by Allison Hamilton, Historian for 2011-2012

Social events with Ohio State SWE continue to be a hit for the 2011-2012 school year!  Pumpkin Carving, Rock Climbing, and Wildlights at the Columbus Zoo were some of the returning events for the year.  Our newest event was an October tailgate at Donatos for the Ohio State versus Nebraska game.  The tailgate was a great way to bring the members together at the beginning of the year, not only by sharing common interest in engineering, but also in Ohio State football!  With more than 30 members attending, it was a very casual and spirited event, allowing members to come and go throughout the game.  Pizza, refreshments, and games were provided.

Pumpkin Carving was always a tradition with Ohio State SWE during late October.  Members came together this year during the Halloween season to enjoy hot apple cider while carving pumpkins!  This event always has a great attendance, and is recommended for any schools looking to have some Halloween spirit in SWE!

Another way to relax with fellow SWE members during the year is to go rock climbing at the Adventure Recreation Center on campus.  Rock climbing is included in tuition for all students, and it was a great way to use Ohio State resources in a SWE event.  OSU SWE recommends any recreational facilities available to be used for social events.  Zumba classes on campus and more rec center events have also been considered for future socials on campus.

The last social event of 2011 was the Wildlights event at the Columbus Zoo, sponsored by Cisco.  During the month of December, the zoo is lit with holiday cheer, allowing customers to tour the zoo at night.  It was a pleasant surprise to see that Santa also made an appearance!  Wildlights was a great way to end the quarter before finals week and make a trip off campus with SWE members.
