The cookie breaks are now organized by Yuval


The Computer Science Graduate Student Benevolent Society (CSGSBS) Cookie Breaks


The cookie break is held every Thursday, starting around 5:30 or 5:00. Please join us for delicious cookies and stimulating conversation!

Please also consider volunteering to organize the cookie break for a week. It's fun, gives you the opportunity to attempt to solve the (weakly) NP-complete problem of spending exactly $30 of someone else's money (yeah, yeah, it's constant time really), and increases the level of your reported well-being. If you want to volunteer to buy the cookies (or bake them), just email me at guerzhoy at cs.

Thanks to Cookie Master Emeritus Vivek for organizing the cookie breaks for the past year!

This photo of a plush Cookie Monster was used. The plush Cookie Monster is probably available at a reasonble price from fine retailers and is apparently suitable for grad students 6 months and up into their program.
