Student Organizations

Computer Science Society

The Computer Science Society (CSS) organizes several events including video gaming and Hack-a-thon competitions, field trips to companies or conferences, and networking events.  CSS occasionally works with other clubs, including eSports, the Robotics Club, Motorsport Engineering Club (MEC), and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).


eSports is a club for serious, but sportsmanlike, competitive video game play at the collegiate level.

Upsilon Pi Epsilon

Hofstra's local chapter of Upsilon Pi Epsilon (UPE), an international honor society affiliated with the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the IEEE Computer Society exists to recognize the academic excellence of outstanding undergraduate and graduate students in Computer Science.

Women in Cybersecurity (WiCyS)

The WiCyS chapter at Hofstra provides opportunities for everyone to learn and get hands-on experience with cybersecurity.  Their goal is to foster a welcoming and encouraging environment for all students at Hofstra, especially females!
