Prospective Undergrads

Undergrad Welcome Day

Computation is an integral part of our world. Posting to a Facebook wall, designing a building, making a movie, listening to an iPod, running a political campaign, talking on the phone and countless other activities are mediated by computation. Learning about computer science will enable you to understand and participate in the creation of these kinds of technologies.
