The College of Engineering at Cornell University is running two programs this fall for women and multicultural students who may have an interest in engineering. Fall Diversity Hosting Weekend (Fall DHW) and the Women in Engineering Program (WIE Program). Both programs will take place September 29 – October 1, 2011 and will provide students with an insider’s view into life as a Cornell Engineer – both programs will take place on the Engineering Quad. Our Fall DHW and the WIE programs are designed specifically for rising high school seniors who enjoy using math and science as tools to creatively tackle hands-on problems. Below are the program websites where students will find the online applications and other details about these programs.

Fall DHW is a co-ed program that focuses on students that identify with backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in engineering (African American/Black, Latino/a, and Native American), while the focus of the WIE Program is the experience of all women engineers at Cornell. Students selected for either program will have the opportunity to stay in a residence hall with a current student; learn details about the admission process; participate in interactive lab demonstrations; interact with faculty, staff, and students; and engage with members of several of our award-winning engineering student organizations. Participation in one of these programs is a great way for students to learn more about what Cornell has to offer aspiring engineers!
Since space is limited for both programs, it is important for students to submit their online applications and other application materials (high school transcript & high school profile) by Friday, September 9, 2011 so they receive full consideration. If you have any questions or require additional information, please contact the Engineering Admissions office via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. and include “Fall Hosting” in the subject heading or call us at (607) 255-5008.
