The CSSA would like to congratulate Robert Offner (Computer Science) and Alan Babaei (Bounce!) on their successful election as the ANUSA College of Engineering and Computer Science Representatives for 2014. We look forward to working with them over the coming year!

It's particularly notable that while the turnout for this election went down by 19.8% this year, the turnout for CECS went up by 22.6%. Good work everyone!

Upcoming CSSA Events

We had four events, on the week coming up to the AGM. However, only one committee member didn't change their role, and over 50% of the committee are new, so we need some time to get back into the swing of things. Stay tuned!

EGN (Teaser)

And the date for Epic Games Night 6 has been announced!

Our biggest event of the semester will take place on October 25th, at the end of week 12.

Save a place in your calendar or diary or even just write it on your whiteboard, because you definitely don't want to miss this night of boardgames, videogames, pizza and general fun!
