WE're in Motion

WE’re in Motion is a two-day pre-orientation experience for incoming women-identifying students, designed to build community and confidence.

New students move into their dorm rooms a day early.  After moving in on Monday morning, students spend the rest of the afternoon and early evening building community, learning about co-op preparation, and making new engineering friends. Tuesday is an exploration of engineering via various hands-on lab experiences with KGCOE faculty.
