We are a social, educational, and career-oriented club catering to CS/CSE/CE majors/minors, though anyone who is interested in our activities is welcome to join us. Our website is currently in development, but the Facebook group is very active.

Social events: LAN parties, board game nights
Educational: professor talks/tech talks*, next quarter classes, hackathons, lessons tutoring
Career-oriented: mock interviews

As of Spring 2013, General Meetings are held every week, Wednesdays at 7pm in Geidt 1007. On top of this we have other events, which you can be invited to on Facebook by joining the Facebook group, or you can watch the website, where the week's events are published.

* If you are a student or professor who wishes to give a talk, please contact Trevor Adams (current VP of external affairs) at tsadams@ucdavis.edu. Past talks by students include lectures on Python and git. Grad students have come to talk about their experiences surrounding graduate school, and professors sometimes come to talk to students about their research.

History

Some companies that have visited in the past include: Microsoft, Intel, IBM, Accenture, Google, Klicknation, Salesforce.com, TiVo, Workday, Lockheed Martin, FLUID, CBS Interactive, Agilent Technologies.
CS Club built the Computer Science and Engineering section of the Engineering department's picnic day float many years ago. It consisted of a paperclip and a penguin inside a small boxing ring, a wacky joke regarding the Microsoft/Linux rivalry. The club's picnic day efforts also used to included a "Street Smarts" game show (whatever that was), but nowadays cool projects are shown off. In Picnic day 2011 for example, the popular iPhone app UCD Mobile was shown off.
The history of CS Club includes countless self-destructions, such that a super pessimistic sort such as ChrisTakemura may be accurate in saying that "CS students aren't really the sort of people to have clubs." The President for 2011-2012 disagrees and thinks it's probably due to a lack of students with a strong, firey passion for the club, and that as long as the torch is passed to competent people, the club can stay alive.

I agree with ct here, but would hate to get a ChrisMcKenzie vs. Computer Science Club going, because that sounds like an awful waste of my time. And shame on you for putting cts comment under editorial review. —ChristopherMcKenzie


2006-05-01 19:18:31   Would I be correct in saying that current students may need to get over the past? CS Clubs can be quite beneficial, and I am aware with the difficulty in managing one. —JustinCummins


2007-07-28 17:53:21   so there isn't an ACM club on campus? —atwong
