Come one, come all to the second Annual general meeting of this year! It’s a great time to come out, possibly enjoy some refreshments put out (to entice you to come), and share your thoughts and opinions on the coming term.
Meet your friendly neighbourhood CSSS execs, and year reps - all on Thursday, January 12th, at 12:30pm. See you soon!
The CSSS will be having an AGM on Thursday Sept. 22 from 12:30 - 1:30 pm. This will be happening in the Student Lounge (near Reboot Cafe). We’ll talk about some events we are planning, and then we’ll open up the floor to get feedback from students. Everyone is invited!
You should come if you:
- have any suggestions or comments for CSSS
- are interested in hearing about upcoming events
- want to see the execs up close and in person!
- want free chips!
We’ll also be giving away the prizes for the Who’s Who Contest!
The last LAN party was such a success that we’re bringing it back! Consider it your last opportunity to game before final exam crunch time :-)
Count on there being a foosball tournament, Risk deathmatches (risqué indeed), Unreal Tournament/Enemy Territory shootouts, and more. And we’re also bringing out our new projector hooked up to the Xbox, for 4 player, Halo 2 action. Fun for the whole family - well, almost. So, even if you protest and deny owning a decent gaming rig, you have no excuse not to come. Pizza (for *genuine* LAN party attendees) will be available and most likely subsidized by Yours Truly.
Like last time, if you want to suggest improvements and give your input, hit the forums (editor’s note: now closed).
If you want to play in the foosball tournament, you can sign up on the bulletin board outside the cube office, OR at the LAN party on friday. There will be a final showdown, one on one between the winning team to see who gets to take home a brand spankin’ new copy of NBA Live ‘06 for Xbox.
For those of you who didn’t attend this extremely popular event last year, In My Experience is basically the straight-dope on Computer Science. Hear from several CS students, in all stages of their degree and what they are doing. If you have that burning question, like, “Should I go into co-op?” (of course!), or “Should I do a double major or honours?” (well, duhhh…), this is the place to get your answers - from peers who’ve had to make those same choices.
What’s the state of CS in general? Hear why those naysayers who claim we’re doomed to be unemployed upon graduation are very wrong. All past participants have agreed that this was extremely helpful so don’t miss out!
And… ahem, where there be speakers, there be giveaways ;-) But even if you don’t get to snag a t-shirt or one of those newfangled cdroms, I guarantee you that you’ll definitely snag something way more valuable - helpful advice that could make a difference in your education or career. It’s what you make of it, and it’s your experience!
