Most women ever majoring in Computer Science at Princeton (most men ever, too!)

Princeton University's class of 2017, the junior class, contains the most computer-science majors ever:  128, which is (of course) 2 to the 7th power. Of these CS majors,  37% are female, the highest proportion of women ever. More Princeton students now major in Computer Science than in any other discipline. It looks like the class of 2018 will have even more women (and more men, too!), but it's too early to tell, since some of our majors (candidates for the Bachelor of Arts degree) don't officially declare their majors until April of their sophomore year.

Ladies and gentlemen, let's hear it for the great class of 2017!
