Beyond the Books in MIME

Getting an engineering education begins in the classroom – but it definitely doesn’t end there. Involvement in extracurricular activities is another important springboard into the world of engineering – and it looks great on your resume, too. As a starting place for extracurricular involvement, check out this Quick Summary of MIME-Based Student Organizations. Now is the perfect time to join in on some of these activities.
