The Courant Student Organization caters to the needs of computer science and mathematics graduate students at NYU.
The CSO aims to provide recreational and cultural activites for the members of the Courant graduate student community.
Since the main goal of the CSO is to help graduate students enjoy their years at NYU, suggestions/ideas are encouraged.
Direct questions and comments to the mailing list or one of the representatives listed below.
More Courant-wide events are being organised, but for the time being, here are events happening in the different departments:
- Computer Science happy hour: usually weekly on Friday evenings, announced on the phd-social mailing list (see below).
- Math happy hour: announced on mathdoc (see below).
- Board game nights
## Mailing Lists
The following mailing lists are, and can be, used to:
- keep students informed about events,
