Record Breaking 25 Computer Science Seniors Graduating This Year

May 5, 2014

This was another record breaking year in the CS department with 25 seniors graduating with CS degrees from Pomona this year.  The explosion in enrollments continues unabated.  We are expecting 33 majors in the classes of 2015 and 2016.  Reacting to these numbers as well as the exploding interest in our introductory courses, CS will have six CS faculty in 2014-2015, and will be recruiting more faculty for the following academic year.

Pomona grad and former CS department system manager Mikey Dickerson '01 was one of the key people who fixed the obamacare web site after the initial implosion.  He is cited by name in many of the articles about the fix and ended up on the cover of the March 10 issues of Time magazine (he is the 3rd person from the right).  More information and links are available from the Pomona College news site at http://www.pomona.edu/news/2014/03/03-time-dickerson.aspx
