Members at Large:

Members at large are a group of students that do need a lot of commitment (this is a great place to start out!) Members at large are required to come to monthly meetings that currently take place via Zoom. We commonly have them every third Thursday of the Month (although follow our Social Media just to be sure). Lastly, members at large are recommended to come to events that the SWSS holds. These can take place virtually or in person and are fun, educational, great way to meet others and bring friends along! You can take place as a guest and just enjoy the end or you can help out and get a feeling of being a possible exec team and gain that volunteer experience!

*If you can not make it to ether of these things the SWSS just asks that you communicate with the Exec team. *
