Why Computer Science?

Personal Interaction With Faculty

Morris computer science students work closely with faculty and are provided with numerous opportunities for:

Student Engagement

Our very active Computer Science Club and student Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) chapter provide excellent opportunities for students to get to know each other.

The computer science faculty organizes events like guest speakers and field trips to conferences and businesses as well as social events like gaming parties and movie nights.

We also host an annual programming contest with participants from the Morris campus and throughout the region.
