Mailing Lists and Other Ways of Contact

CSEG maintains several mailing lists for contacting graduate students in CSE. You can catch other csegers on IRC on the #cseg channel at CSEG is also on Twitter at umichcseg.

Committee Representation

We maintain a representative on several committees around campus to present the opinions of CSE graduate students and to keep students informed of current issues.


Every Wednesday afternoon during the Fall and Winter terms, faculty and students can take a break from work to drink hot tea and munch on cookies. Teas are held at 4:00 or 4:30 in 3725 CSE.

Hosting Tea

Happy Hour

Happy Hours, usually held at 4:00pm in the GSI Lounge (room 2817 CSE) give students a chance to take a break over snacks and foosball. Occasionally, we hold Happy Hours off-campus at a restaurant or bar.

During the Fall and Winter terms, Happy Hours are a weekly event. We still continue over the summer, though it is less regular.
