Student Organizations

Aside from the Council of Student Organizations (CSO), there are special student organizations under the College of Computer Studies that promote research culture and collaboration among faculty members and students; conduct individualized (one-on-one) tutoring sessions for students; and develop well-rounded Lasallians working together for the total development of members by pursuing excellence in academics as well as extra-curricular activities. These organizations are:

Student Research and Development Program (SRDP)

The Student Research Development Program (SRDP) is a student organization under the College of Computer Studies (CCS) Research Director. It is created to fulfill CCS' aim of promoting research culture and collaboration among faculty members and students. In this program, highly motivated and intellectually-gifted students are given an opportunity to work on research projects spearheaded by the Academic Area Chairs (AAC) of the college.

CCS Academic Areas and Area Chairs
Artificial Intelligence Ms. Merlin Suarez
Databases Ms. Marivic Tangkeko
Software Engineering Dr. Raymund Sison
Natural Language Processing Dr. Rachel Roxas
Operating Systems Ms. Elaine Jane Chua
Microcontrollers and DSP Mr. Clement Ong
Computer Architecture Mr. Roger Luis Uy
MIS Area Ms. Lissa Andrea Magpantay
Computer Networks Mr. Alexis Pantola
Netcentric Computing Mr. Danny Cheng

Peer Tutors Program

The aim of this initiative under the Office of the CCS Vice Dean is to select, train, qualify and deploy a group of CCS students in order to conduct individualized (one-on-one) tutoring sessions for students in Computer Programming 1 and 2. Any tutoring session will primarily be characterized by individualized instruction (explaining and/or reviewing constructs, discussing solutions to sample programs) and remediation (providing corrections, giving hints and/or advices, coaching).

These tutoring sessions shall serve only as supplementary venues of learning to lecture classes and consultation with faculty.

Society of Proactive Role Models Inspiring Total Development (SPRINT)

The Society of Proactive Role Models Inspiring Total Development (SPRINT) is the honors society of the College of Computer Studies under the Office of the CCS Vice Dean. It is headed by a President and a pool of Vice Presidents

Vision

We envision a team of well-rounded Lasallians working together for the total development of each individual SPRINTer by pursuing excellence in academics as well as extra-curricular activities serving as role models for Computer Science students.

Mission


  • To tap the leadership potentials of SPRINTers to become proactive and respected members of the society
  • To cultivate and enhance the talents and skills needed for the total development of each SPRINTer
  • To promote camaraderie among SPRINTers
  • To promote SPRINTers' involvement in college and university activities
  • To provide avenues for growth and social responsiveness
  • To serve as role models by being achievers in academics and extra-curricular involvements
