A/V Equipment

Java Review Session

  • Last Saturday we helped out CS1 students in a programming workshop.
  • We got some feedback from a student telling us that it was helpful for the coding part of their exam.
  • Thanks to everyone from the Computer Club that volunteered!

Office Updates

  • We are planning on taking old and outdated books from the Computer Club office library and selling them to Amazon for credits.

    • If you would like to help us identify the useful books or if you want to purchase any of the old books, let an officer know.
  • Thanks to ohhaimark for cleaning our Model Ms and for cleaning other tables around the room!
