Carnegie Mellon University President Subra Suresh visited the White House and Women@SCS was one of the initiatives he mentioned, as a "nationally recognized effort to engage women and girls in computer science." Read the CMU news article about it here.
We had an informal Women@SCS alum get-together with current students during carnival this year! It was a great opportunity for current students to gain new perspetives from alums who had once been in their shoes. Alums also enjoyed meeting current students and seeing what Women@SCS has been up to in the year(s) since they graduated.
