SWIGS long-form name changed

We are pleased to announce that SWIGS members have overwhelmingly voted in favour (96%) of updating our official name to the ‘Society of the Water Institute Graduate Students (SWIGS)’. To celebrate our rebranding we are also working on a new logo to be used for SWIGS SWAG (shirts, pins, etc.) coming this spring. If you have design ideas for a new logo, let us know by this Friday, Feb. 10th! They can be full designs, sketches, or just ideas. Contact us via our email at uw.swigs@gmail.com
