Summer 2014 Alumni Meet-up in the Bay Area

UMass Amherst Computer Science Alumni Meet-up in the Bay Area!

The UMass Amherst School of Computer Science hosted our very first alumni organized meet-up for UMass Amherst CS alums (and current student interns) at Google's Mountain View, CA facility. It was great to see so many of our alums at the event, over 70 attended, which is the highest number we have seen so far at an alumni organized event! Alum and interns chatted with CS faculty who were there (Lori A. Clarke, Professor and Chair, as well as Profs. James Allan, Robbie Moll, and Lee Osterweil).
