EWeek 2022 is Happening!
First celebrated in 1951, National Engineers Week is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers. At Rutgers, EWeek is a chance to showcase what makes the School of Engineering great and to celebrate our community with fun events and some friendly competition.
We are actively recruiting members of our pep-squad to serve as volunteers! The primary role of a Pep Squad member is to be visible in the Rutgers SOE community and to promote and share information about EWeek programs and events. As a Pep Squad member, you will receive exclusive EWeek merchandise, along with chances to win gift cards! DEADLINE TO APPLY: Sunday, February 6th, 2022.
Volunteers Can Sign Up Here
Battle of the Majors: EWeek Spirit Trophy
May the best major win! Earn points for your department by attending and volunteering at National Engineers Week events. All attendance and volunteer points will be tracked after each event. The most spirited department will be announced on Friday, February 25th at the conclusion of EWeek.
Point Scoring System: The percentage of students in each department who attend or volunteer at each EWeek event will determine the number of points the department receives. For each event, each department will receive a score of 1-10 points (10 for the department with the highest percent of attending students and 1 for the lowest). No department will earn a score of 0. Total points will be tallied at the end of the week.
To Participate: Students, faculty, staff, and alumni can all contribute points to their department! Look for the QR code/google form link at the start of each event and enter your name, department, society, and RUID
Attendees for events will receive points (i.e. coming to our spirit week table or Cardboard Canoe Races). The following groups will receive double points for attendance (i.e. count as two attendees): volunteers at each event, Pep Squad members, Interns Present participants, faculty, staff, and alumni.
