It was a very interesting show , and, like you, I was very curious about the CS program.  Must have been very different from the CS program I had my freshman year - of course a lot has changed in in 30+ years :-)

Lisa and Allison,

What Maria says about the first year women who take CS5 is definitely true.  They really get into the subject. CS now has the highest percentage of women majors in the country, and by a long shot.  My understanding is that they redesigned the CS5 course to make sure it wasn't just a programming course.  There's a good deal of information on a page set up by  Christine Alvarado, one of the professors involved.   See http://www.cs.hmc.edu/~alvarado/IntroCS.html

Lisa, even if your daughter wasn't attracted to HMC majors, she might be interested in one of the other Claremont Colleges (Claremont McKenna, Pitzer, Scripps, Pomona) from where she could cross register for the HMC course :-)

Best,

Joseph
