Favourite Courses - CMPT 127 | CMPT 225

Languages of Choice - C++ | Python

Contact - csss-doe-current@sfu.ca

Bio -

Justin is a CS student who has too high of ambitions, always burdens himself with more work that he is ever capable of handling, and spends too much time socializing with other people. He will sometimes identify as an Arts & Social Sciences Student as he has a minor in Cognitive Science too. He also lives a mere 15 minute drive or bus ride away from the Burnaby campus, and is open to meeting people, so feel free to approach him and say hi!

Contact - csss-doc-current@sfu.ca

Bio -

Johnson is a second year CS student who hails from the depths of East Vancouver. Oshawott is his spirit animal, and he is always out and about (in his room that is). When not overdosing on coffee or weebing out, you can find Johnson waging a total war against the onslaught of ants that have invaded his home. That being said, he is always willing to lend a helping hand or will gladly be confused with you — mostly the latter.

Dina is a second-year Software Systems student who got lost on her way to campus and somehow ended up at the CSSS. She was told to write something in her bio but she really has no hobbies other than overloading her work schedule and complaining about it to her friends. If you want to find Dina for any reason, just follow the 'POYO!!' echoing down the hallways. poyo.

Favourite Courses - CMPT130 | PHIL105

Contact - csss-eal-current@sfu.ca

Bio -

Son got to this point thanks to CJ dragged him to room-0 on a rainy day. Son is a 2nd-year student that so far enjoys smashing his head on the keyboard until his bugs are fixed and it is proven that to better than caffeine. So far he is a little bit confused with CS but at least he got the spirit. If you can not find him then there is a good chance he is just playing his older Pokemon games or being a filthy mobile gamer.

Ryan is almost entirely sure he used to live in Toronto. He has abandoned haircuts and good taste in music in the hope that he will one day attain enlightenment. There has never been a human being less suited to computer science, but he's totally doing his best. Has been hungry since 2008, and is full of useless knowledge, all of which is fair-trade and gluten-free. Available in Rose Gold, Zesty Lemon Spice, and Perpetual Disappointment.
