Upcoming Events

CSS KICKOFF party

Our kickoff party was a great success! It was great having the opportunity to meet current and new CS majors. Some of the professor even stopped by to introduce themselves to the students. Our goal was to get the members of the CS department informed of our past current and future events and at the same time allow our community to not only grow professionally, but become closer with one another. During the event, we also introduced the team of directors of our Computer Science Society (CSS) Club.  We learned that communication is key to achieve goals through educational experience activities, all attendees were rewarded with soft drinks and pizza at the end of the event. We hope we continue bringing our community together, by providing technical and soft-skills workshops; field trips and, why not, by going out together.

Series of workshops

Many times I have found myself watching tons of YouTube videos just to learn something fairly simple that was not covered in any of the classes I took.  Many more, I have heard people talking, using some terminology that I am supposed to know just because “I am a Computer Science student” ??.  It might be true, but in order to achieve this I might have to be reading and listening Podcasts all the time, which will be difficult because I also have a life.

Someone would say — well, just look it up on google — and I am thinking —Oh boy… If I could skip work today.

Join this Series of Workshops and learn something new along with your fellow students.  We want this to be a safe environment for you.  You know? that’s cool, lets help others.  You don’t know? that’s cool, let us help you.

You will be exposed to:

  • New material/topics, How-to troubleshoot with google, Working collaboratively and much more…

Find the workshops schedule on the Events page, or on the CAHSI tentative schedule page.

P.S: Contact us if you want to be part of this initiative and lets help everyone grow!


Frequently Asked Questions

What is the ACM?

The Association of Computing Machinery (or ACM) is the world’s largest international membership organization dedicated to computing. Founded in 1947, the ACM has matured into an organization made up of over 100,000 members and more than 600 local and university chapters. The ACM is well-known for its numerous publications that offer unique perspectives from leading professionals in the computing industry. It is also well-known for its Digital Library, the world’s most comprehensive collection of computing materials, including millions of pages of full-text articles, journals, and conference proceedings dating back to the 1950s.

How is the Computer Science Society affiliated with the ACM?

The Computer Science Society (CSS) at Northeastern Illinois University is one of the ACM’s many University Chapters. Chartered during the summer of 2013, we strive to uphold the mission of the ACM by delivering learning materials and professional opportunities in computer science to students in the NEIU community.

Who makes up the Computer Science Society?

We are made up of NEIU’s most obsessed computer science enthusiasts and we are thrilled at every opportunity we get to learn about something new in computing. Many of NEIU’s graduate and undergraduate computer science majors belong to the CSS, but we welcome all NEIU students and members of the ACM to join us in our weekly activities.

What kind of things do we do we do in the CSS?

Well, we often find ourselves engaged in things like programming projects or heated discussions about computing technologies. But, we have also been known to break out the board games and game consoles and watch movies for fun. If you are interested in joining an exciting and diverse group of learners engaged in computer science, you don’t have to look any further! We are the one and only NEIU computer science club.
