ABOUT

Women in Computer Science (WiCS), is a student run organization on campus for all students to support each other and be supported. Our goals are to aid in college classes and stress, as well as create lasting friendships around campus. WiCS is here to support students' studies, opportunities, friendships, and their overall college experiences. We are here to help educate and promote women in this field. To do this we host events that connect students to opportunities, bring companies to campus, prepare them for classes, give resources, coding competitions, professor workshops, movie nights and provide upperclassmen help.
