Tru Women in Computer Science (TWiCS)
The Tru Women in Computer Science (TWiCS) is an organization of women students who have an interest in computer science. It is an official University organization sponsored by the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science and was partially supported by a grant from the Boeing Company. You don’t need to be a CS major or minor to participate, you just need to be enthusiastic about computer science.
The focus of the organization is for members to support each other and to have fun through hands-on activities, discussions, outside speakers, tutoring sessions, field trips, and social events. The group meets regularly throughout the semester Tuesdays at 5 pm.
