All CS Faculty have an open door policy and invite students to stop by any time. We encourage students to voice their questions and concerns, and to get to know us. The better we know the student, the better and more personalized our letters of recommendation for internships and graduate school can be.
CS Club Fall 2012
The Computer Science Club is a student run organization that pursues the interests of its members. In the past this has included networked gaming, student presentations, site visits, and event planning. In 2010/2011 students purchased components to build their own computer, built it and now use it for club events. In past year the club helped out at the annual “Careers, Technology and You” event for high school students, and supported admissions events.
Currently the club is seeking motivated students to participate and get involved. If you have some ideas for activities and are willing to help pull the events together please contact any member of the CS faculty. THank you.
Tutoring Fall 2012
Jeff MacQuarrie is available for tutoring for Computer Science courses every Tuesday and Thursday from 11-2 in HH318. Stop by with your questions.
John Sharko is available in CASA on Mondays and Tuesday from 2-9pm and Thursdays from 11-3. Both tutors look forward to working with you.
Mentorship Program (changed to Bridge to Your Future in Fall 2012)
The Business and Computer Science Department would like to encourage you to participate in the B2F program. The advisory board members from both programs strongly recommend that students practice speaking with professionals, that they become familiar with expectations of people in industry, and that they attend site visits to identify different types of office culture. The B2F program includes a variety of events from workshops to help you build your resume, elevator pitch and clean up your digital image, to roundtable discussions with mentors, to site visits, to conversation about particular job related issues. We hope to see you at the kick-off event on Sept 12 in the Alumni Room at 1:30.
