CSC Wolf Bytes

The department is saddened to learn of the recent passing of Thomas Austin Olander (BS CSC 2014). At an early age, he was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy. In his ambition to study the ethics of artificial intelligence, he completed both a BS in CSC and a BA in Philosophy at NC State University. To the many faculty, staff and students who knew him, we can all attest to the fact that his life was a shining example of courage and love.

The department extends a fond farewell to Chris Gurley, CSC IT Linux Administrator and Sandra Taylor, Research Scholar, who will be leaving us in January. Chris will be joing SAS, while Sandra has accepted an offer to lead a software development team at Bandwidth. We wish them both the very best in their new roles with outstanding corporate partners!
