CSGS Cup

Our Annual CSGS Cup, a friendly co-ed competition between the CS graduate students from the Goldberg Computer Science building and the CS graduate students in the Mona Campbell building, gives students a chance to be active, get to know each other, and enjoy the beautiful Halifax Summer.

The Annual CSGS Cup

During the Summer term, CSGS hosts an annual friendly co-ed competition between the Goldberg CS and Mona Campbell CS graduate students. While the CSGS Cup began as a soccer match between the two teams, it has since evolved to a 3-sport event competition! Including soccer, ultimate frisbee, and bowling.

Interested on being a team captain for either the Goldberg Computer Science or Mona Campbell teams? Send us an email at DalCSGS@dal.ca and find out more!

All Faculty of Computer Science graduate students, Post-Doctoral Fellows, Faculty, and Staff are welcome to attend and participate in our Annual CSGS Cup.
