It stands for Wellesley Hacks. It’s an overnight hackathon sponsored by our computer science club (and supported in part by modest ventures like Amazon, Google, and Dropbox). It involves long hours, short naps, close mentorship from professionals (including alumnae!), and projects designed to benefit national nonprofits and Wellesley’s Office of Disability Services. It’s not just about innovation—it’s about collaboration, celebration, and pragmatic brilliance. It attracts hundreds of students from more than 50 colleges and universities, the majority of whom are women. So it’s different than standard hackathons. And, you know, more awesome.
