In ESO, we help a myriad of different organizations to solve problems. Our main priority is serving others and making the community a better place. This doesn't mean just in terms of community service; rather, ESO is more about building a community to help the community. Just as community service is integral to our organization, providing a fun, friendly, and welcoming environment for our members is equally as important. Our members make it possible for us to continue serving, and we strive to give them the tools they need to succeed not only in their project teams, but in their school and social environments as well. We want to ensure that every member in our organization has an experience that is not only helpful and meaningful, but also fun and personable. Above all, we strive to set our members up for success in their future, by teaching collaborative problem solving and leadership skills, and even skills from other engineering disciplines that they may not have learned had they not been involved with ESO.
We asked our members exactly what their thoughts were about our organization, to get a feel for why our members enjoy ESO so much. Our first anonymous response is in!
Freshman at OU, member of ESO
"I'm a freshman at the University of Oklahoma, and accompanying that freshman status is of course a sense of entering a community, but being just outside the loop of a whole new group of people. I was drawn to ESO because I did a lot of service work in high school, and I figured volunteer-work would seem familiar. Now I'm in my second-ever college semester and if I feel at home or "in the loop" anywhere in Norman, it's with the kind, patient, welcoming, and dedicated members of ESO. ESO combines the best aspects of both work and play--the members are driven toward realistic yet significant goals, but they never fail to make hard work a good time."
We hope to make everyone's experience with ESO as enjoyable, familiar, and personal as possible for our members, as they are the reason we are able to do what we do.
Halfway through this first week and we are already 34% toward our $1500 goal! The campaign is moving at a fast pace, but we need to ensure we reach our goal in order to keep growing, reaching out to more members and organizations, and to continue impacting the surrounding community in positive ways. From everyone here at ESO, thank you for your interest! If you can donate we would greatly appreciate it. If not, please share this page in any way you can to ensure we reach our goal before the deadline.
Thank you very much!
