15-128 meets Tuesday from 3:00 p.m. to 4:20 in 7500 Wean Hall.

During this series, freshman CS majors meet and hear from different members of the SCS community. The speakers talk about our school, their research in CS, the history of computing, and future trends. The goal is to expand the students' concepts of what is Computer Science and what resources are available to them as students within the School of Computer Science.

In addition, this course is a place to build community among the Freshman class, and to extend their horizons within and without CMU. To this end, please read the Passing the IC web page, which describes how to accumulate enough points to pass this course.
