End of Semester Trivia Quiz

Hi Everyone,

As the semester draws to a close I hope everyone has done well to submit assignments and start with exam preparation. To end the semester, CASSA will be holding a trivia quiz on the last day of exams. Sorry to those who may still be sitting assessment on the last day.

Teams of 4 are requested however if you don’t have a team that is fine. Come along and teams can be formed or you can compete alone if you desire.
Consisting of four rounds combining general knowledge and technical questions. However, it is a chance to come together and celebrate the end of semester and to look back on all the hard work people have put in.

Event Details:

Rooms 18.103 and 18.104

Computer lab name suggestions

Hi Everyone,

The computer labs on level two of building 18 are being renamed in the near future. CASSA members have been given the chance to provide some input to the School of Science for suggestions. The theme of the naming is famous people in the field of Computer Science. To be eligible to submit a suggestion you must hold a valid ECU student email. Submissions close November 20th. Send your suggestions to,

competitions@cassa.org.au

The subject of your email should be in the following format including the quotation marks enclosing the submission field
[Lab Naming 2020] <studentName> – “<submission>”

Please note: Failure to send in suggestions from a valid student email or the correct subject formatting will result in the email being discarded by spam filters.

If you wish to explain why you chose that particular person/people you can do so in the body of the email.
We look forward to collating the suggestions from students and forwarding them to the school for consideration.

All the best with the semester.

Niall

Changing of the guard.

Semester 1 2020 saw much upheaval to our daily lives. The global pandemic forced unprecedented changes around the world and CASSA was no exception. Despite this we battled on and made the best of it trying to complete our studies and make the best of the situation. In May the AGM took place and the election of a new executive team for 2020/21 was conducted. Come the end of semester official handover has completed. As incoming President, I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all the hard work the out going team put in. I wish them all the best as they head off to complete their industry placement.

Keep an eye on the events announcements for activities that will be held in the upcoming semester and remember any questions and suggestions can be submitted to exec@cassa.org.au . We look forward to meeting new members and catching up with old ones once the new semester starts and life returns to normal on campus. Once again thanks to the 2019/20 executive team and all the best to all CASSA members.
