Smithies in CS’s Peer Mentorship Program was created to allow upperclassman CS majors to share their experiences, help students navigate the major, and just be there for support! The goal of this program is to give students someone to go to for questions about CS in general, the resources we have in the department, internship opportunities, study abroad advice, etc.
Marleni is a student studying at Smith College and a board member of the organization, Smithies in CS. Marleni is also the Residential life Social Justice and Equity Chair (SJE) and member of the Society of Women Engineers.
Come join other students at Smith College’s Hackathon, HackSmith on April 7 - 8. Though this hackathon is focused on providing a space for women and non binary identifying individuals, all students are welcome to participate. It is also open to students of all levels, as we are running workshops for students looking to learn new skills like Intro to Gaming and a GitHub Basics workshop. We are also holding activities like the #myoctocat contest, sponsored by GitHub, and a stress free area for people who want to take a break from the competition. Food from local restaurants will be provided, and travel reimbursement will be given to eligible students. To register and for more information visit: http://hackatsmith.com
