Helping MCS Students

What is CSSC?

The Computer Science Student Community (CSSC) is an open space for Computer Science students to come in and ask questions about their university and post-university career. We act as liaisons to the Computer Science faculty to ensure that all students can seek the appropriate support and guidance. CSSC seeks to support students through community initiatives built upon inclusivity and empowerment.


CSSC is dedicated to your academic and professional growth! We're here for you with opportunities, spaces and resources to inform your computer science journey through university!


Our technology team is devoted to developing processes and tools to help you succeed! We curate from across the internet and produce original content for our community!


We work closely with other MCS clubs and societies in order to achieve common goals in the CS community!
