Start of Term Announcements
Most of these start of term announcements are related to covid-19. That's just the way of things right now.

CS courses are mostly available online Most CS courses have at least one section of the course that is offered online either asynchronously (all videos, no meeting time) or synchronously (regular meeting times, on Zoom). For most CS courses it should be fairly easy and seamless to participate remotely when needed (i.e., if quarantining). And for most CS courses it is probably fine if you want to participate mostly online due to concerns; check with your instructor.
Office hours Most faculty will have some office hours available face to face, and also happy to meet online.
Masks are required indoors and you will be asked to leave if not wearing a mask (properly).
Covid - masks required indoors, vaccine or weekly testing required for on campus students. See university covid information for more details.
Computers in the CS rooms are available for use (using your CS class accounts). They will not be sanitized, so please use hand sanitizer before and after use. Feel free to use your laptop and plug in to power.
Department office See here for the normal department office hours.
CS placement test For those starting CS 151 as your first CS course in the CS major, you now need to take the CS placement test to verify that you will be ready for the course. Transfer students also need to take the CS placement before they start their first semester at ISU. See Computer Science Placement for more details.
