ASK A FACULTY ADVISOR - Live Online Info Sessions!  

Computer Science Undergraduate Students - current and potential:  We have set up a weekly schedule through the end of the semester for you to ask a faculty advisor questions about computer science courses, computer science as a major, computer science as a career, or anything related!  All you have to do is pre-register, you will then be sent the link to join the session and a reminder of the time/day for which you registered.  Computer Science staff member Nathan Thomas will host the sessions, and each day will have either Dr. Bob Walker, Ms. Maha Allouzi or Dr. Gus Samba as the presenter.  We want you to join us - if you ask the questions, we will provide the answers!  (Times and dates will show in the link to pre-registration.)
