We have a rich community of people who work together in a variety of organizations and outreach activities.
We take pride in being fun and friendly. After all, your experience here will go way beyond classes. You’ll make friends that you’ll know your whole life (you may even go into business with them). You’ll learn how to be a leader—and a team member—through our student groups (which will help when you’re looking for a job). And you’ll get that warm, fuzzy feeling when you take part in community service (it really is a great feeling).
You can also:
- Eat free pizza, enjoy gaming, football, and more during our weekend Game Days.*
- Be in the school’s Homecoming float.
- Take the stage for our student talent show.
- Hear about the latest tech news and research at events with industry speakers and professors.
- Network with potential employers at Career Services events.
- Relax and refresh mind and body at our lunchtime yoga series.
- Join the school’s team in Bloomington run/walks.
- Chill in the Informatics Café.
- Celebrate the holidays at a pitch-in lunch.
- Enter a team in the table tennis championships and other tournaments.
*If you’re really, REALLY lucky, you’ll get to play Guitar Hero with Dennis Groth, our associate dean for undergraduate studies, who periodically rocks the mic.
