2007 Systers Pass It On Award Winner
Women in Computer Science at DePauw University
WiCS, Women in Computer Science, has a very important year coming up. We plan on building up the organization and working to recruit and retain women in this male-dominated field. With the money from this award, we want to increase our presence on campus and throughout the Greencastle community. We also want to help and support the students that we currently have in our organization. I’ve become very passionate and interested in WiCS and I really want to help our organization grow into a larger group.
Since the officers of WiCS are students in college, we are not established in technological fields, but we do aspire to enter into the computing field upon graduation. We hope to help WiCS grow and inspire other women to take advantage of the unique opportunities at DePauw. The PIO award is helping us achieve our vision.
