Avian Loneliness

  • January 11, 2006
I've discovered that being a grad student is pretty lonely. I'm too tired to reach out to the people around me, so it'll probably take a little bit to get to know my classmates. My CS 4210 prof (who is a woman) pointed out, at the start of class today, "I see we have a girl in the class!", which brought applause from several guys in the class. She probably felt self-conscious enough as it was, but at least the prof isn't a guy or it would have been creepy. The other two classes (ECE 6100 and ECE 6607) aren't much better in the girls department, being about the same as the last couple years of my undergrad career: probably about 1 girl to every 10 guys. Why don't girls like doing technical things?

Every girl at Tech likes doing technical things. We just have different specializations, I guess.

(what do you mean, "why would they?" :P Why WOULDN'T they, rather?)

Er, sorry--almost every girl at Tech. Every engineer, at least, and quite a few of the non-engineers as well. The ones in management getting their MRS degrees (as opposed to the really awesome management majors) pull the "oh, I'm a girl and computers are icky!" card way too often, though.

There is so much more to school than the guy/girl split. Enjoy your classes for what they are---you wanted to learn more about EE; now you can without a lot of distractions.
