Outside the classroom, several activities help create a sense of community
among computing students and faculty.
The department organizes picnics in the fall and spring, often held in
cooperation with the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.
Faculty and students get together informally for
lunch at noon on Fridays.
Most weeks, students and faculty meet for our Thursday Extras
with refreshments and conversation before a talk by a student, faculty
member, or visitor.
The Computer Science Student Educational Policy Committee (CS SEPC), elected by majors, organizes study breaks most weeks — typically Monday evenings starting at 8:00 pm, as well as other events.
