Code of Conduct

Hi everyone,
The committee has written and printed and put up a second version of the code of conduct we trialled last week. This one is a lot more words, but is a lot clearer and covers a lot more things. Next time you come into the common room, stop by the door and give it a read.

One thing it doesn’t mention: if someone is acting contrary to the code of conduct and you don’t feel comfortable raising it at the time, you can email/message whichever committee member you are comfortable telling about it - the executive (myself, Jan Zimmer, Benjamin George Roberts, Stuart Herring), International Rep, Postgraduate Rep and Common Room Rep (Omid Rezvani, You Hong, Martin Henschke) all have their emails up on the posters next to the code of conduct. Many of us have immediate notifications enabled, and can act on things pretty quickly.

If you want to have a read, follow this link to the PDF.

CSIT Break-in

A break-in occurred in the CSIT building this morning - Friday 20 March - at approximately 4am. The CS Common Room was broken into as well. Several personal items belonging to a committee member were stolen, as well as a small amount of cash from the fridge mug. ANU Security and the AFP attended.

ANU appears to be targeted quite strongly at the moment considering other recent loses.

As ever, it is recommended to keep your valuables under your supervision.


COMP1100/1130 Massive All Evening Study Event alt "Facebook"

Its time for the Massive All Evening Study Session for Wireworld (Assignment 1)!

On the 25th of March in Hancock West starting at 18:00 to Midnight, tutors from the course, PAL mentors, Uwe and volunteers from the CSSA will all be there to help you get the first Comp1100/1130 assignment under control.

There will be paid tutors until 22:30 and just like the event the CSSA ran right after the first Comp1100 event there will be copious amounts of pizza at 19:00 so you can power through the all evening coding session.
