Programs and Resources
The Undergraduate Big Sister/Little Sister Program matches first year women with sophomore, junior, or senior women with the goal of strengthening bonds between women in the CS community. The Big Sister/Little Sister relationship serves as an excellent way for first years to get to connect with someone whom they can go to for friendship, advice, and support. Big Sisters have an opportunity to mentor others and share their experiences and perceptions of computer science.
