About Us

Our Mission

The Computer Science Undergraduate Student Board was established in 1999 to promote a supportive and engaged community within Purdue’s Computer Science Department, and to use its relationship with faculty, the Computer Science Corporate Partners Program, and administration to advocate for the student body.

Our Objectives

Advocacy

USB cares about improving the student experience. Visit our daily office hours or attend the undergraduate town hall to discuss ways to improve our community.

Resources

We're here to help CS and DS students. We teach CS193 Tools for first-years, run a free help room for intro CS courses, and maintain a tutor list.

Events

We put on events that matter, from fun events like Bloomberg’s Puzzle Challenge to professional opportunities like the Yelp Mock Interviews.

Our Initiatives

We take pride in the freedom our members have to pursue impactful initiatives both immediately and in the long term. Some initiatives have been around for a decade or more, while others come and go as our goals evolve.
