Community events

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 lecture series, 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.
