The Alumni Community ... our past, our future


belltower imageWelcome computer science alumni!  As we celebrate the department’s 50th year in 2017, take pride in knowing that you are part of a large and growing community that now totals over 8,000.

Perhaps your memories include images of punch cards and long lines waiting for computer time.  Or maybe you cherish the memories of an extended counseling session with Joyce Hatch in her second office, Mitch’s Tavern.  Or perhaps you recall championships, not just the basketball variety, but also the academic ones.

Regardless of when you graduated, you are forevermore a part of our family.  As such, we encourage you to remain engaged and involved in the life of the department.  Below are a few ways you can do so.

Let Us Know of Your Successes.

Whether you are celebrating a big promotion, a new patent, the launch of a new company, a marriage and/or parenthood, we are proud of our alumni and want to share in your success stories.  Please use email and let us know what's new in your life.

Whether you graduated last year or 20 years ago, we have many opportunities for involvement.  You could be a mentor to students, speak to a class about your experience, serve as a co-host in your town for a college recruiting event, or become a member of our Strategic Advisory Board.  Let us know if you want to get more actively involved in the life of the department and we will help you find the perfect opportunity.

Nominate Someone for the CSC Alumni Hall of Fame.

The CSC Alumni Hall of Fame was established in 2017 to celebrate and recognize the exemplary contributions our outstanding graduates have made to their profession, their community, and to the world at large. Award winners will serve as an inspiration for current and future students, while promoting the department’s global impact for producing incredible talent that embodies the University’s mantra to “Think and Do the Extraordinary!” To nominate someone, click here.

Make a Gift.

Just as your success was paved by the gifts and support of those who came before you, we encourage you to consider the department in your philanthropic plans.  There are numerous gifting options available. You are welcome to review the options online or contact us directly to help you identify the right opportunity to share your success with future generations.
