Byte Bash 2008
On May 3, following very successful senior seminar presentations, the Computer Science Discipline had its annual Byte Bash. This time, for the first time in about three years, it was actually held outside! The weather was cooperating, the food was delicious, and frisbee space and tennis courts were available, so everyone had fun.
According to the tradition, ACM club officers elections were held at the Byte Bash. Congratulations to Chris Larson, Nathan Dahlbeg, and Jeremy Bleichner - the newly elected ACM officers!
