Our students say:
"I get more attention from the TAs here because the lab sizes are small."
"The profs are helpful, and they enjoy going over things I don't understand."
"The labs are a great atmosphere to get to know other students, they help you get through when the going gets tough."
"Start your programming assignments early. They are real challenges and they always take a lot longer to do than you think they will!"
"If you can, get yourself a PC so you can do work at home, too. It is a big advantage to have personal access on computers to work from home."
"Once I got to know the people in my class, the TAs and the profs, I felt a lot more confident and more comfortable working in the department."
Our Department is the first at Brock to employ a mentor, to proactively serve the needs of our students, especially students in their first university-level programming course. The primary functions are to advise and tutor students who are struggling and need more assistance than the teaching assistants are able to provide in labs. In addition, the mentor encourages students when the going gets tough and gives advice when needed. Contact:

What's on Campus?
Connecting with fellow students is easy, given the great number of athletic teams, student associations and clubs in which you can participate. (Check out the Computer Science Club!) Isaac's pub in the Alumni Student Centre, is a favourite hangout, especially with the nearby food court and video arcade. Two general stores are well-stocked with all the incidentals you'll need. Brock's Physical Education complex is home to a new indoor rowing facility and 50-metre swimming pool, and is well-equipped to meet just about any fitness interest.
What about computing resources?
A campus-wide fibre optic network links all the University's academic computing facilities. The department's computers form an integral part of this resource. Most computers on campus can be accessed from microcomputers in any of the laboratories.
The Computer Science department maintains 4 labs dedicated to Computer Science majors:
Students may connect their own laptops to the Internet through wireless access points both in the department and throughout the University. 24 hour/7 day access privileges are available for students who need to work in the labs outside of normal operating hours.
Students also have access to computer graphics software (Bryce, Poser, SoftImage), database software (ORACLE, Access) as well as JCreator, Visual Studio.NET and MS Office.
