Women in Science and Engineering – Fall 2020 Update

By Molly Keane-Sexton

Residents of the upper-class WISE house planned a community building event for the first-year WISE women on October 30. They held a tie-dying event in the Humanities Plaza where the WISE ladies were able to bring anything to tie dye or reverse tie dye. They could also choose from supplied solid shirts. WISE house members enjoyed planning the event and interacting with others while remaining socially distant. Here are the perspectives from the members of the WISE house:

  • Madison (MEE, '22) states “I love living in the WISE House. We have similar interests and majors which helps with classes. All of the roommates get along in the house as well. The tie dying event was a lot of fun. I enjoyed getting to engage with the first-years outside of classes and in a social setting.”
  • Keely (CEE, '22) states “On October 30, we hosted a WISE event where we dyed t-shirts. Initially, set up was challenging since we had to follow COVID-19 guidelines that the university set forth. However, after careful thought and lots of preparation for the event, we got a good number of participants. Everyone had fun and the t-shirts turned out great.”
  • Katie (CME, '22) says “It was a fun time and I’m glad to see so many creative designs! The students were having a great time too!”
  • Abbi (CEE, '22) says “It was nice getting an opportunity to meet more of the WISE students in a safe and fun environment where we were able to be socially distant. Other than being a little cold, I think the event was a success!”

COVID-19 protocols did not prevent the BEES from swarming this fall. Bike rides along the river—in cohorts smaller than 10 persons—enabled students to visit Dayton’s archeological site Sun Watch (which was abandoned by Fort Ancient Native Americans in after a rapid period of resource depletion) and see the area’s landfill and sewage treatment plant…from a healthy distance.
