Annual Trip

September 22–23

This popular weekend trip is covered by the WIMSE programming fee and is free to residents. This fall we will visit Chicago, IL for a tour of the Water Reclamation Plant and stop by the strange and cutting-edge exhibits at the International Museum of Surgical Science. We'll dine in the city and take in a show at the famous Second City.

The Beckman Connection

Go on a special tour and attend a reception at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology. Learn about the incredible research going on at Beckman, meet the faculty, staff, and students involved, and find out how you can you can get into research! Tours/receptions happen three times a year. 

Dinner and Conversation with Professors

Faculty members trek over to the residence halls to join us for dinner and informal conversation in the Florida Avenue Residence Halls Library. Their advice is eye-opening, their stories unique, and their research inspiring. 

Researchers Initiative

Open to any student in Global Crossroads, Health Professions, Intersections, and WIMSE. See the Researchers Initiative page for more information.

Student Programs

Peer Mentors offer monthly programs that are fun and address being a woman in the STEM fields.

Residents are a lively bunch and often start their own programs. What will they be this year? Additionally, arts and crafts programs have been a popular tradition at WIMSE — great stress-relief for all that intense studying.
