LiBBy (Learning in Bits and Bytes) is the Computer Science Learning Community.
LiBBy is a unique opportunity for incoming computer science freshmen to form bonds with students who share common interests. The community seeks to foster joint exploration of computer science and college life by offering linked courses, housing with other computer science freshmen, mentoring, and opportunities for extracurricular activities. LiBBy Schedule of Events
All incoming computer science freshmen will be enrolled each fall.
LiBBy is one component of the computer science pipeline program, Facilitating Academic Triumph by Providing an Integrated Pipeline Experience (FATPIPE). The most important advantages of the LiBBy program are the relationships it will help students build with faculty and their peers. In each of the first two semesters, LiBBy students will take two courses together as a group. These courses are required for Computer Science majors and taking them will help, rather than impede, one’s timely graduation. These courses will have fewer students than most lower division classes. Furthermore, the professors have been selected for their teaching excellence and their expertise in the area of study.
A second advantage of the LiBBy program is that enrolled students will have the active support and counsel of upper division Computer Science students who can guide them on courses to take, studying tips, and a myriad of other topics.
Finally, students in LiBBy will have special advising by faculty members and advantages in registration over nonLiBBy members. There are even more advantages and options available to the LiBBy students.
All incoming Computer Science Freshmen will be enrolled in LiBBy. If you stay on campus and want to be housed with incoming Computer Science students you need to indicate this on your housing application.
