The richness of your undergraduate experience is based not only on academics (such as your courses and research) or your career preparation, but also in your engagement the life of the CS department and the UT campus. Faculty members create courses and organize curricula, but students define other important facets of the CS undergraduate experience. We encourage you to try out the activities and events organized by CS and other student organizations.
