Cornell Bowers CIS welcomes new majors to the college

The Cornell Ann S. Bowers College of Computing and Information Science rolled out the red carpet at its New Majors Welcome Event, a celebration to embrace newly declared students and showcase the breadth of opportunities, activities, and services now available to them.

More than 200 students attended the event held Oct. 27 in the Statler Auditorium. Attendees received a warm welcome from Kavita Bala, dean of the college, and introductions to LeeAnn Roberts, director for the Cornell Bowers CIS’ Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and Ingrid Jensen, director of Student Services. A faculty panel offered advice to the new majors, and leaders from student groups promoted their organizations.

“It is an incredibly exciting time to be in this field,” said Bala in her opening remarks. “Whatever you learn over the next few years, we really hope that you will take it and have an impact on future technologies.”
