About the WiSE Kickoff/Welcome

Since 2015, WiSE has hosted the Kickoff, which features a BBQ lunch (dietary options available), Kona Ice, a resource fair with campus departments, student organizations, and STEM companies, games, activities, and prizes. All 5,600 undergraduate women in STEM are invited to attend!

Due to COVID-19 safety measures, the Kickoff is not able to continue in its previous format. For 2020, the Kickoff is now the Welcome! 

Date & Location

The 2020 Welcome will be held on Sunday, August 16, 2020, on Central Campus, in front of Curtiss Hall. Look for the white tent!

Timeslots are available from 9a-4p. Students will be emailed a link to sign up for a timeslot the week of August 10. Be sure to sign up so you can meet other WiSE students, enjoy FREE Kona Ice, and the chance to win prizes!

Per university policy, masks are required.

Resource Fair 

Due to social distancing guidelines, the resource fair will not occur in 2020.  Please contact Sarah DuBois at with questions.
