Passing the Torch/Pre-Registration Event

Students attended the Pre-Registration Event to get student-on-student advice about classes and scheduling for next semester. There were answers to questions like, "What's the best logic elective?", "What's the easiest science elective?", "Does this schedule look insane?", "Is it reasonable to pair 'x-xxx' with 'xx-xxx'", and more! No faculty allowed. Just an honest discussion amongst students. There was also be a special surprise for seniors!

Congratulations, Nivedita!

The Carnegie Mellon Women's Association (CMWA) honored the School of Computer Science's selection of Nivedita Chopra as an outstanding graduation senior woman with a scholarship and recognition reception on Tuesday, Apr. 22nd.
