We also invite our alumni and friends to check out the news stories we've posted with information about our current students and faculty, as well as other departmental events.
Alumni Dave Leichtman (B.S. '00) and Sam Klock (B.S. '10, M.S. '11) helped us set up a William & Mary Computer Science Facebook page. Sign up and post a comment as a fan.
Welcome Back Alumni!
We were pleased at the number of alumni in attendance at our 2010 Homecoming events. CS alumni participated in the first-ever Computer Science night at the new Cohen Career Center on Thursday, October 22. We packed the Presentation Room at the Cohen Career Center with about ninety students interested in learning about career opportunities for students with CS degrees from W&M.
We also hosted a departmental reception on Friday afternoon. It was a great chance for alumni and faculty to catch up and reconnect. In addition, the reception provided an opportunity for both faculty and alumni to meet some of the promising students in our introductory courses and to explain to them why they should major in Computer Science.
We don't know if it was a coincidence or not, but we've subsequently seen a major spike (pun intended) in our registration figures for Spring 2011.
