This April, the Department of Computer Science was honoured to celebrate undergraduate student Sasa Milic as a recipient of the 2014 Gordon Cressy Student Leadership Award. The Cressy Award is given to graduating students at U of T, who have made outstanding extra-curricular contributions to their faculty, college, or to the university community.
Sasa was nominated by the department for being an active and committed member to DCS and the university.
