The Computer Science Alumni Community ... our past, our future

 Welcome computer science alumni!  As we celebrate the department’s 40th year in 2007, take pride in knowing that you are part of a large and growing community that now totals over 5,000.

Perhaps your memories include images of punch cards and long lines waiting for computer time.  Or maybe you cherish the memories of an extended counseling session with Joyce Hatch in her second office, Mitch’s Tavern.  Or perhaps you recall championships, not just the basketball variety, but also the academic ones.

Regardless of when you graduated, you are forevermore a part of our family.  As such, we encourage you to remain engaged and involved in the life of the department.  Below are a few ways you can do so.

The best way to ensure you receive departmental mailings such as our Connected alumni newsletter, our monthly eNewsletter, or invitations to special events like our 40th Year Celebration, is to keep your contact information updated.  We invite you to email us to update your address and other information.

Let Us Know of Your Successes. Whether you are celebrating a big promotion, a new patent, the launch of a new company, a marriage and/or parenthood, we are proud of our alumni and want to share in your success stories.  Please use email and let us know what's new in your life.  

 Get Involved. Whether you graduated last year or 20 years ago, we have many opportunities for involvement.  You could be a mentor to students, speak to a class about your experience, serve as a co-host in your town for a college recruiting event, or become a member of our Strategic Advisory Board.  Let us know if you want to get more actively involved in the life of the department and we will help you find the perfect opportunity.

Make a Gift. Just as your success was paved by the gifts and support of those who came before you, we encourage you to consider the department in your philanthropic plans.  There are numerous gifting options available. You are welcome to review the options online or contact us directly to help you identify the right opportunity to share your success with future generations.

Help Us Promote Our Department & Our Alumni. Share the good news about our department with your friends and professional colleagues.  And check out our Alumni Achievers!, which features only a small number of our incredibly talented and successful graduates.  Send a note to us if you would like to suggest someone to be featured here.  

 Take Advantage of Our Alumni Resources. Visit our virtual Computer Science Career Services center and take advantage of several services such as job postings, a resume database and other links & resources.

Purchase a Brick. By ordering a personalized brick, you will not only become a permanent part of our campus history, you will be helping future generations of computer science students through "pathway to the future" scholarship. These commemorative bricks require a donation of $150, and can be ordered through this printable online order form.  They are located brick oval outside EBII.

Visit Us. Don’t be a stranger!  Stop in and visit us when you are on campus.  We’d love to talk with you and show you around EB2, our state-of-the-art teaching and research facility on NC State's Centennial Campus.
