CS Table: What I did this summer

The first meeting of Grinnell's "CS Table" will be this Friday, August 28, at noon in JRC224A. The topic of the first CS Table will be What I did this summer. Yeah, it's old hat, but we'd like the opportunity to catch up with everyone.

For this first meeting, the department will cover the cost for students not on board. Sign in at the ID station.

We look forward to seeing you there! (We also look forward to your suggestions for topics for CS table.)

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 discussion at noon on Tuesdays.
  • 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.
