This is Liza speaking. I have been president of the MIT SWE section since January and it has really been amazing so far. Everyone in the organization is great and I wanted to just give a shout out to some noteworthy individuals from MIT who were rewarded scholarships from the the Society. Additionally, I put together a photo collage of some of the great memories we have been able to collect so far.
