Welcome Weekend 2024: March 8-9
Each spring, the CS Department and Graduate Student Organizations host a Welcome Weekend for visiting prospective students. Prospective graduate students who have been offered admission to the program will learn about faculty research, meet with professors, socialize with current graduate students and experience the beautiful UW-Madison campus.
The visit weekend has an action-packed schedule all day Friday and Saturday. If possible, plan to arrive in Madison Thursday, March 7 and leave on Sunday March 9. The Friday sessions are about the Computer Sciences department, its research, and our faculty. Check-in and continental breakfast begin at 8:00 a.m. Faculty research talks will start promptly at 8:30 a.m. on Friday.
Saturday activities are led by current graduate students. The goals are for participants to experience Madison, mingle with current graduate students and get “insider information” on graduate student life in the UW-Madison CS department.
Admitted students will receive a detailed email invitation in February that will include the registration forms and additional information. Double occupancy hotel rooms for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings will be paid for and arranged for out of town all Welcome Weekend attendees who register by February 25. The hotel requires the information by that date.
