Spring 2014 Student Presentations
On top of celebrating a great semester and recognizing the achievements of individual students this Wednesday, nine groups of students would like to demonstrate their project accomplishments over the past semester.
Some will be demos or posters, but most will be in the form of 5-10 minute presentations starting roughly at 2pm in the CS department office following the celebration.
It is guaranteed you will learn more in the 1+ hour of demos and presentations than 1 hour of cramming for finals, so come celebrate the collective work of our independent study students.
