Date Posted: Sep 22, 2020
Hey there! 👋
First of all, huge congratulations on being accepted to study at the University of Birmingham! 🎊
We are CSS (Computer Science Society), the award-winning departmental society for the School of Computer Science.🏅All of our events are awesome and organised by fellow students! ✨ Here’s just a taste of what we’ve done before:

- Games Nights/(W)LAN Parties 🎮
- Quizzes 🤓
- Women in Tech Events 🙍♀️
- CSS Annual Ball 🕺

Why should I join CSS?
CSS is a huge community that you’ll definitely want to be involved in! It’s an amazing way to make new friends and build your tech skills! 😜
We’ve got loads of events planned for you guys (starting with a huge freshers quiz 🤯)!
You can join CSS through the Guild of Students at cssbham.com/join for just £5! 😱
How do I get involved?
This year, to keep you safe (for at least the first term), we’ve moved all our events online to our very own Discord Server! 👾
You can join our Discord at cssbham.com/discord. We’d ❤️ to see you there!
After you’ve joined, make sure you introduce yourself in the #introductions channel! 😉
We encourage all our members to take part in these really cool events called ‘Hackathons’! 💻
“What’s a hackathon?” I hear you ask… It’s best described as an ‘invention marathon’ where people can learn, build and share their creations over the course of a weekend (or however long the Hackathon is) in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.
You don’t have to know anything about programming to get involved! In fact, hackathons always have something to cater for new programmers. ⌨️
See you in September
