Big Sister / Little Sister
The purpose of the Big/Little Sisters Program is to strengthen the bonds between women in SCS and encourage a forum for discussion and support. We pair freshmen Little Sisters with upperclassmen Big Sisters. The Big Sister/Little Sister relationship serves as an excellent way for first year girls to get to know someone in the department whom they can look up to and ask for guidance. Furthermore, the program encourages Big Sisters to share their experiences and perceptions of computer science.
