CSGS is working on an initiative aimed at providing an exclusive space for CS grads (master, PhD and postdoc students) to meet up, socialize relax and maybe some a bit of reading too! There is shortage of space McGill-wide, but CSGS is trying to work with the department to secure this exclusive space and do everything possible to make that happen.
A majority of CS grads want this space to be used for both entertainment and academic use, which highlights the need for both. Below is a summary of stats of responses:
69% want the space to be utilized for both academic and entertainment purposes
25% want to be exclusively entertainment space (foosball, table tennis, dart board, comfy couches etc)
2% want it to a quite study space only.
56% of respondents were master student,
44% were PhD.
CSGS will continue to work with the department to secure this space, we hope that will happen soon, we’ll keep you posted!
