CEE Incoming Student Facebook Group

We wanted to let you know we have created a Facebook group for all incoming CEE graduate students. We will invite you to join the group in the near future. You can accept that (or not), it is totally voluntary.

Incoming students who were in the Bachelor program here may be particularly helpful in answering questions about campus life, Seattle, good neighborhoods, places to visit, etc.

We hope you will find it useful and give you a chance to get to know other incoming students before you get here.

In September, before autumn quarter starts,  you will be invited to join the Facebook group for current CEE grad students, which is open to all incoming and continuing grad students.

CEE Department Welcome Event – Oct. 5

The CEE Department will be hosting a departmental “Welcome” event for all incoming students (grads and undergrads) on Wednesday, October 5, 4:00 – 6:30 PM, in the HUB North Ballroom

This is a great opportunity to see what is going on in the department, not just in your particular area of interest. Faculty from the areas will show an overview of some of the current research. It’s an exciting time to be a part of CEE, great things are happening here that impact the Puget Sound area, and the world!

Some of the time will be interactive “fair” format with student organizations including ASCE (including locker rental info), Chi Epsilon and Engineers Without Borders, as well as Study Abroad opportunities and the College of Engineering Career Center.

All incoming students (undergraduate and graduate) are invited to attend. Mark your calendar now!
