What's Up?



Wellesley seniors just pranked the school. Check out the CS Department!



Now offering new courses "Computing and Life" (CS249) and "Quantifying Data Privacy" (CS349) this semester!


MIT's App Inventor 2 launched last week, with 9 Wellesley students contributing to its improvements this past semester in MIT 6.s198 and in research projects.


This fall, Wellesley students participated in the Grace Hopper Conference, ICPC Programming Contest, and the Capture the Flag contest.
