Fireside Chats

Looking for an E2 bonus round? Fireside Chats are informal sessions (“chats”) on fun engineering related topics, and the opportunity for students to get to interact with faculty, your Fulton Peer Mentors, clubs and organizations, and industry professionals! Fireside Chats happen throughout the entirety of E2, so join any session that interests you regardless of which camp you attended.

What: Experience the Fulton Difference through our Fireside Chats! Meet Fulton Schools faculty, learn about campus services, or play games with your Fulton Peer Mentors.

Who: All E2 Camp participants should attend! Each session will have multiple “chats” to choose from.

When: Fireside chats will take place after the main E2 agenda, and can be accessed through your E2 Canvas site.

Meet industry professionals from big name companies like Boeing and Microsoft, and learn about different services on campus such as the Fulton Tutoring center.

Get your questions answered about various Fulton difference programs such as Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS) and the Grand Challenges Scholars Program (GCSP).

Meet Fulton Peer Mentors, get your Homework 0 questions answered, and participate in various games!

All times are in Tempe, Arizona time. You can find the links to each Fireside Chat in your E2 Canvas site.
