2. Mentors

Every freshman MSc student was assigned a faculty member as a temporarily mentor.
These mentors will meet with the students (on zoom or in person) in small groups once in a while to help the students to meet each other, and "find their way" in the faculty. This is not a scientific mentoring, though you may discuss math and computer science if you wish.
If your mentor did not contact you by October 20 please email Dmitry (horaa.math ...).
Students are welcome to turn to their mentors with their difficulties.
You are also always welcome to contact the faculty board of studies: Dmitry Gourevitch, Zvika Brakersky, Amos Tanay and Ohad Shamir.

3. Meet a faculty member

The following faculty members kindly agreed to meet a small group of students and chat informally:

Irit Dinur, Amos Tanay, Oded Goldreich (only for lunch), Vered Rom Keidar (only for lunch), Dmitry Gourevitch (only virtually), Avraham Aizenbud (only virtually)

The meetings can be via Zoom or in person (e.g. for lunch) depending on the regulations and preferences.
If you are interested in meeting one or more of the faculty members please email Dmitry (horaa.math ...) by November 13.
