In 2018-2019, Girls Who Code expects to have nearly 13,000 college-aged alumni. Our alumni have the skills they need to succeed in computer science — what they need now is support. That’s why, in Fall 2018, Girls Who Code launched a new program specifically for our college-aged alumni: Girls Who Code College Loops, university-level networks of alumni and young women in computer science.

College Loops

Who can join?
Girls Who Code College Loops are GWC Alumni led and open to any women on their campus who are studying computing or interested in technology.

What happens?
An on-campus program for women, offering monthly challenges and exciting new material. In Girls Who Code College Loops, women hone their computer science skills and engage with other women to take action, collaborate, create, and inspire one another! Plus, exclusive opportunities to meet with industry professionals and companies.

Where can you find us?

Because we know that community colleges are an untapped resource for increasing diversity in CS, with over 50 percent of Hispanic and Black undergraduates educated at community colleges, Girls Who Code College Loops will debut at both four-year and two-year institutions.
