CS 61A course enrollment reaches An all-time high in 2,000 studentsThe Daily CaliforniAn #CS_61ASeptember 11, 2019
The professor of CS 61A, John DeNero, said in an email that that despite the large class size, 25 waitlisted students may still join the course.
“It’s exciting to see so many students interested in learning about computer science,” DeNero said in the email.
Bennett Agnew, EECS director of external relations, said the high enrollment in CS 61A is not a new trend — the major’s popularity has been growing for years.
Enrollment in EECS and computer science has increased in recent years, from 2,857 students in 2017 to 3,172 in 2018.
Campus sophomore and EECS student Rami Hijab said he thinks the high enrollment in CS 61A is “great.” Hijab said the increased enrollment in the course allows more students to understand the basics of the modern day technological evolution.
Hijab notes, however, that the large enrollment number presents a challenge for the department to properly allocate resources for students.
“(The administration) must proceed with caution to ensure the appropriate resources are available for students to succeed and collaborate in a productive learning environment,” Hijab said in an email.
Campus freshman and intended chemistry and computer science major Marvin Du is currently in CS 61A.
He added that there are many resources to help students if they are struggling, despite the large class size.

Adult spanking is a curious thing. I mean, most of us did not like being spanked as children. We dreaded spankings, didn’t we? So, why do so many of us long to be spanked as adults. I think for some of us, it is for sexual pleasure. For others, it is to meet an emotional need. Maybe we feel we deserve it before we enjoy fucking. Some parts of society make women feel we are bad if we enjoy being fucked. So, maybe we feel better about our longing if we are punished first. I will tell you why I want you to spank me.
