Q: What will I do in a CSE-PACE session?
A typical session will have each 8-10 person cohort and their lead peer mentor talk about a video/ news article related to the cohort theme, do an activity on campus, or try out something you're using in your classes.
Q: Will I get credit?
We encourage students participating in CSE-PACE to add CSE 91 to their schedule so that they can earn course credits as part of participation in the program.
Q: How do I join?
You can come by CSE (EBU3b) 4140 during a cohort time in Fall quarter and we'll help you get set up. To let us know you're interested ahead of time, fill out the registration form and add CSE 91 to your class schedule.
First-year CSE students are organized into cohorts led by an experienced CSE undergraduate tutor.
Join our weekly hour-long sessions to talk about CSE courses and the impacts of cutting-edge computing topics over free food.
CSE-PACE is free, designed for all first-year computing students, and runs for the entire academic year.
Earn 2 units of credit for participation by enrolling in CSE 91: Perspectives in CSE during Fall quarter. Priority enrollment to CSE majors. Discussion attendance is optional; don't worry about scheduling conflicts between the CSE 91 Discussion time and your other classes.
Register first to help us make groups ahead of time. Or, if you just show up in CSE 4140 on Tuesday at 9:30am, Wednesday at 1pm, or in CSE 2154 on Thursday at 12:30pm during the first 3 weeks of the Winter quarter we'll help you get started!
