About the Program
The Emerging Scholars Program (ESP) is open to promising CS freshmen enrolled in PROGRAMMING WITH MULTIMEDIA OBJECTS (CS 177). It provides an opportunity to begin learning computer science in a challenging, but friendly environment. The student's advisor places the ESP students in a special small discussion section as a complement to the CS 177 course that will meet once a week in the fall semester. Each meeting is led by Team Leaders (undergraduate CS students who excel in the major) and involves working in groups on interesting problems designed to help students develop a deep understanding and appreciation of the topics taught in class.
