Student organizations

Computer science student groups:

Computer Science Student Council
The Tufts CS Student Council, comprised of CS student group leaders, head TA's, and members-at-large, meets twice a semester with the department chair to assess the state of the department, communicate concerns, and identify opportunities for improvement.

Association for Computing Machinery at Tufts (ACM at Tufts)
The Tufts student chapter of the international professional organization for computer science research and education.

Association for Computing Machinery Committee on Women in Computing (ACM-W)

Black Students in Computer Science (BSCS)
BSCS is dedicated to fostering a sense of community for Black students who are studying computer science and related fields such as data science and cognitive brain science. Representing one of Tufts' most underrepresented groups in CS, BSCS exists to provide professional development, technical training, solidarity, and equitable opportunity for all students among the African diaspora. BSCS provides a welcoming, collaborative space for students to connect and form meaningful relationships while also growing as future leaders in the tech industry. Faculty advisor: Kathleen Fisher

Computer Science League of Learning
CSLOL is a Tufts graduate student organization founded in the fall of 2014 by two graduate students. Their mission is to provide current graduate students within the department and the university with social events, professional development, and outreach.

JumboCode
JumboCode is a student-run organization at Tufts University committed to developing software at no charge for nonprofit and federal organizations.

JumboSec
JumboSec's goal is to promote cybersecurity and policy knowledge in the Tufts community by holding weekly meetings, facilitating participation in competitions, and collaborating with our growing alumni network. We believe that security knowledge is crucial for Computer Scientists and that communication is just as (if not more) important than technical ability. We welcome everyone to JumboSec regardless of background or technical expertise.

Tufts Computer Science Exchange
The Computer Science Exchange evolved out of Tufts' ACM (Association for Computing Machinery). It is an independent, student-run organization inspired by the idea of unlocking the shared potential of computer science students who wouldn't otherwise share ideas and skills.

Tufts Girls of Code
The mission of Tufts Girls of Code is to engage young women in computer science early on in order to provide educational opportunities and diversify the tech industry. We aim to expose girls to a variety of computer science fundamental concepts and give them hands-on coding experience through our workshops. 

Tufts Robotics Club
Since its inception in 2010, Tufts Robotics Club has aimed to bring together students who are interested in robotics and eager to learn and apply new engineering skills through hands-on tutorials and projects. Our club participates in several competitions throughout the year, including the Trinity Fire Fighting Robot Contest and the Intel-Cornell Cup, as well as other non-competitive projects. As part of our mission, the club offers tutorials for incoming members – no prior programming or robotics experience is required.

Women in Computer Science (WICS)
WICS is dedicated to connecting and supporting women and femme nonbinary individuals studying computer science at Tufts. Faculty advisor: Professor Lenore Cowen
