Attending the luncheon in Owens Banquet Hall were 100+ company representatives, CS faculty and undergraduate scholarship winners. Seventy-three undergraduates were recognized for receiving scholarships for the 2011/12 academic year.  The majority of these funds were provided by the College of Engineering, with CGI, the Department of Computer Science, and the CSRC contributing to the total. 

Also during the week of the 12th, CSRC members had the opportunity to visit several classes and speak with Computer Science and General Engineering majors to discuss CS as a major, the variety of opportunities in the field, and the abundance of jobs available to CS majors. 

With the number and variety of positions offered by our CSRC partners, it is definitely a great time to be a CS major!
