The semester is well underway and Speed School Student Council has been busy helping the Speed School Class of 2017 get acclimated to campus and life as an engineering students. Speed School Student Council (SSSC) is a branch of the Student Government Association specifically for student in J.B. Speed School Students. Not only does student council sponsor and coordinate events like Engineers Ball and E-Expo, the student organization plans dozens of events and activities each semester focusing on involvement, friendship, and fun.
SSSC kicked the semester off with the annual Society Picnic which brings students and Speed School Student Organizations together for a recruiting fair. Over 500 students both new and old enjoyed a cookout on the JB Speed steps while networking with leaders of each of the organizations. The event offered students the opportunity to find major and career-oriented activities to get involved in across the Speed Campus.
Furthermore, SSSC sponsors a Freshman SSSC which allows the new campus leaders to hit the ground running in student leadership positions. The elections for the Freshman Council just wrapped up and it looks like they will do big things. Make sure you stay tuned to see what they have in store for their activities for this semester!
Lastly, SSSC is teaming up with the Speed School Alumni Council to sponsor a student and alumni BBQ as part of the homecoming week activities. Tentatively, the BBQ will be around the noon hour on the J.B. Speed steps on October 18th. The full details will be posted on the website next month!
