Student Organizations

Computer Science Undergraduate and Graduate Studies


Student organizations are a vital and important aspect of student life and growth as a computer scientist. By joining a student organization, you will build social and professional networks and deepen your leadership, technical, and communication skills. Students organizations provide an opportunity to engage in fun activities and provide service to the department; your involvement and contributions to an organization should be highlighted on your resume.
