Last weekend, I attended the SWE-KC and KU joint networking event at The Roasterie. Since the event started around lunchtime, I decided to try out The Roasterie’s Food Truck Brunch before the event. There were three different food trucks offering both breakfast and lunch options, including chicken & waffles, pizza, wings, and even some Cuban food. It was a gorgeous day, and I enjoyed eating my lunch outside and listening to the live guitarist.
I finished my lunch and entered The Roasterie Café just in time for the 12:30 tour to start. I found a couple of the SWE-KC ladies and we started the tour with an introductory video. We then proceeded on the tour and learned a lot about air-roasted coffee. Our tour guide was very informative and captivated the audience with his clever jokes. Along the way, we met several KU SWE members, and we had some time to network with them at the conclusion of the tour. Two of the KU SWE members were seniors and getting ready to enter the workforce, and others were freshmen. We encouraged them to consider attending upcoming SWE conferences, including the Region Conference in St. Louis in February. It was a great opportunity for SWE professional members to network and mentor collegiate SWE members. There was even some mentoring happening between the seniors and the freshmen students.
