To give back to the community, SWE-UTEP had a Canned Food Drive. All the canned goods were donated to the Child Crisis Center, a center dedicated to prevent and treat child abuse.

One of the last events SWE-UTEP participated in was the Latinitas: Aim High Conference. The Aim High Conference is a K-12 outreach event geared towards encouraging girls to aim high by setting goals for themselves, achieving academic realms, exploring future career fields, and connecting with professional role models. SWE-UTEP discussed what engineering is, the different fields within engineering.
