CS Panels

CS Student Panels

Student panels are an activity sponsored by the department in which Wellesley graduates in computer science come to discuss their experiences in graduate school and/or in the workplace. These panels provide a unique and valuable opportunity for students to ask questions and make contacts with Wellesley grads. The panels are usually held once or twice during the school year, and include refreshments.
