Society of Women Engineers Orientation Host Program
Each year, Berkeley Engineering’s Society of Women Engineers (SWE) hosts a new admit Orientation Host Program (OHP). OHP is a unique event held specifically for female identifying and non-binary students admitted to UC Berkeley’s College of Engineering and chemical engineering major from the College of Chemistry to get a taste of life as a Berkeley Engineer.
Through engaging mixers, panels, and speakers, attendees have an exclusive chance to engage with prospective and current engineering students, meet trailblazing professors and faculty, and be paired up individually with an engineering student.
The in-person program on Friday, April 22 will include activities, such as:
- Campus tour
- Lab and classroom tours
- Professor talks
- “Day in the Life” experiences (shadowing an undergraduate student)
- Networking and fun activities
The online week-long program, Monday, April 25 – Friday, April 29, will include activities, such as:
- Club Mixer to show off engineering clubs on campus
- Speakers (professors, alumni, ESS advisers)
- Online games & activities
Having your a pen pal will give you one-on-one access with a current engineering student. You’ll be able to ask questions about campus life, choosing classes, what they like about UC Berkeley and more!
Note that you are interested in a pen pal when you register for OHP.
