If you are looking to major in computer science, Yale may not be the Ivy League school you are looking for.

According to a Bloomberg report, Yale is lagging behind many comparable schools in funding and resources for computer science. Students at the New Haven university have circulated a petition to Yale to provide more funding and professors to the program and has been signed by over 1,000 people.

Here's an excerpt from the petition:

"Our department is severely underfunded. It has not grown in decades while student enrollment in the major has soared. This leaves us unable to consistently teach higher-level electives, let alone what is often considered "the core". Our department's status is continuously falling. Soon enough, when we say we were Yale CS majors, people will ask "Yale has a Computer Science Department?". This is unacceptable."
