As a Computer Science major, our goal is to help guide you through your degree program in a pleasant and efficient manner, as well as assist in navigating any hurdles that may arise along the way. We hope that this page will help you to do just that. Below you will find information and links to resources not just pertaining to the CS program, but your entire campus experience. However, as campus life is ever evolving, we may have missed something. If you have questions or need one on one assistance, stop by the department office or send an e-mail to depsec [at] cs.kent.edu. The office is located on the 2nd floor of the Mathematical and Computer Sciences Building (MSB) in room 241, just around the corner from the Mathematics office. We can also be reached by calling 330-672-9980 between the hours of 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM Monday through Friday.
Your safety and security is also very important to us and we would like to remind you that the University offers free escort services. Please take advantage of this free service anytime you find yourself walking alone after dark (or anytime you are concerned about your safety). This service is available to everyone on campus including students, faculty and staff. Just call 330-672-7004 or dial 27004 from any campus phone. This phone number, as well as several other important campus numbers, can be found on the attached listing. Important Phone Numbers
