CSters is a club at Rice University created as a network for individuals interested
in Computer Science. We specifically support female enrollment in Computer
Science at Rice, however, we extend an open invitation to all individuals
interested in the potential of computing.
CSters was founded in the Spring of 2002 by a group of female Computer
Science undergraduates who realized the importance of supporting women in this field. Our activities include a mentorship program that
pairs upperclassmen and graduate students with lowerclassmen,
informative lunch talks featuring faculty, students, or industry professionals, and
various outings. We also sponsor members to attend the annual
Grace Hopper conference.
For a more detailed description of who we are and what we were founded to do,
please see our constitution.
Our current faculty sponsor is Lydia Kavraki.
