Undergraduate Departmental Representatives
UDRs serve as student representatives of the computer science department, organize events for undergraduate computer science students and provide feedback to faculty and staff. They are also available to provide information to both current and prospective undergraduate students.
We're excited to announce three new undergrad department representatives for COSI! Jason Fan has graduated (and will miss the COSI community), but feel free to reach out to him for alumni help or other questions! Yalda Mauj ('23) will be departing after this semester as well. We have a lot planned for this year, and we'll be hosting the first department event very soon.
Meet the 2022- 23 UDRs
