This semester, we started Women@SCS's first Student Faculty Lunch series. The program brings together undergraduate students, graduate students, and a professor each month for lunch at a nearby restaurant, with the goal of encouraging conversations between students and faculty, and providing students with additional mentorship and learning opportunities. Featured guests so far have included Professors Siddhartha Srinivasa, Jean Yang, and Jennifer Mankoff.
