Our Society

The Computer Science Graduate Society (CSGS) was established in 2014 to represent the voice of the graduate student body at the Faculty of Computer Science, at Dalhousie University, and cater to the needs of graduate students, both within the Faculty and at the University level.

Since its establishment, CSGS has worked to enhance the community atmosphere within the Faculty and the broader Dalhousie University community by coordinating and promoting academic activities such as the Dalhousie Computer Science In-house (DCSI) Conference and Discover Mondays, sporting events such as the Annual CSGS Cup and CSGS Soccer, and other social events such as CSGS Trivia, Holiday Potluck, and Board Game Afternoons.
