This page will be used to plan the first meeting of the Fall 2015 semester. The page may be used to plan large meetings in the future as well.

The reason for needing this page is probable high attendance due to free pizza, the activities fair, and other forms of publicity. We want to have more people understand what we do here and what they can do in the labs. This should hopefully attract more people who are interested in actively participating in COSI.


  • Activities Fair
  • Campus Slideshow
  • Flyers
  • Send students to talk about the labs in various classes (at least CS141/142).
  • Offer Intro to Linux again. Possibly in-class?
  • Announcement Email
  • Clarkson Calendar


  • Order pizza a day or two in advance


  • "What is Open Source?" talk
  • Lightning talks
  • Maybe a movie after the meeting? Free popcorn!

Other ideas after/around the first meeting

  • Spiels in CS141/142 about how awesome COSI is and why you should show up.
  • Have various levels of projects ready for people to dive into.
