Current CSSS Executives

The CSSS is run by students who are chosen every year in a Department-wide election. They ensure the business of the Society runs smoothly, and are always available to help any fellow student in need. Any CS student can run for these positions. Every station, save Exec-at-Large, serves for an entire year.

Responsibilities for each Role can be found in the CSSS Constitution under section 4.1

or leave a note encrypted in ROT13 in the common room, and David will leave another note encrypted in ROT26 for you to pick up within the week.

Bio - Born and raised in North Vancouver, David came to SFU for various reasons, one of which was because some random guy in a TF2 server said something about SFU being good for Computing, and he decided that was good evidence. It ended up being pretty true. David can now be found sitting in the common room too much, generally being loud and occasionally running down the halls. David likes to think he's decently friendly, so feel free to bug him about pretty much anything.

Current SFSS FAS Representative

Please note that an SFSS FAS Rep is not a CSSS officer

SFSS FAS Representative - Jeffrey Leung

Favourite Courses - CMPT 276 | CMPT 127

Languages of Choice - C++ | anything that is not JavaScript

Contact - appscirep[at]sfss.ca

Responsibilities - Jeffrey occupies one of the 16 seats at the Board of Directors, the highest governing executive body of the SFSS whose task is to "determine what the members want and need, prioritize amongst those needs, and ensure that the organization actually provides for those needs". Jeffrey works closely with the student unions and students of FAS to ensure that their views and needs are represented. He also works on various SFSS committees for projects such as governance reform and Surrey Campus advocacy/events.

Bio - A 4th year student and loyal convert from Computing Science to Software Systems, Jeffrey spends a lot of his time in the CSSS common room as a traitor and spy. Though some people believe he enjoys the work he does for the student societies, he's actually just here for the free pizza. Just like Corbett Gildersleve, one of his predecessors, Jeffrey has no plans whatsoever for graduation.
