Athena Digital Design--Applications for Spring Now Open

The Athena Digital Design Agency started here at Barnard a couple years ago with the mission of encouraging more women to learn to code. It is a student-run organization and offer free HTML/CSS and Javascript classes to current Barnard students. Students meet weekly for a 2-hour class. No coding experience is necessary to join the classes! 

After the completion of the HTML/CSS course, students are welcome to join the agency where they can take on web design jobs from clients. This is a great way to make some money on the side, improve students' coding experience, and add something to your resume. 

Deadline for applications is December 23rd

History Course Registration

Students who preregister for a 4-point history lecture course with sections should also preregister for a section associated with the course. Sections are listed right under the lecture listing and have a slightly different course number. The current section listings are only temporary sections and do not list days/times, but students should sign up for them nonetheless.  Sections will be finalized and scheduled at the beginning of the spring 2017 term.
