Lewis has started a student organization dedicated to assisting students in their efforts to learn and be exposed to all aspects of aviation.
Lewis Women in Aviation provide the chance to network with aviation professionals from the Chicago area as well as tour local facilities. We will also offer workshops on topics ranging from scholarships and internships to professional development. Lastly, we will attend the Women in Aviation International Conference this spring in Atlanta, Georgia allowing you the unique opportunity to speak with aviators from all over the world.
Lewis Women In Aviation welcomes students with a passion for aviation. Both women as well as men are encouraged to participate! Join us on Monday nights in the Harold E. White Aviation Center room 136!
