Living on a Big Salary: A guide for the new Computer Science graduate (Dr. Craig Partridge)

The average starting salary for CSU Computer Science students on graduation is about $74,000. That is in the top 2% nationally for people aged 22, so by some metrics, you will considered rich. By any metric, it is a substantial salary.

Based on discussions with friends and colleagues, this talk is about things we wished we had known when we graduated into a big salary. How much free money will you really have? What is a reasonable budget? What benefits packages matter? How do you value stock options? The goal is to give you a starting point from which you can craft your own plan.

Here is a link to Dr. Partridge's presentation

No Meeting

Although there is no meeting this week, ACM and ACM-W are holding an officer planning meeting for prospective officers. If you are interested in being an officer for one or both of the clubs next year, please see the details below:

Are you interested in Industry Speakers, Cool Hackathons, the Computer Science Community at CSU, and of course PIZZA? Are you interested in planning, organizing, and boosting your resume with leadership skills? Come see what it takes to help build the ACM and ACM-W communities at CSU!

It's that time of year where we are looking for more community builders to help us keep our community thriving!

ACM and ACM-W are holding open meetings in the open area on 3rd floor CSB at 5:00pm on the first Wednesday of every month (March 6th, April 3rd, and May 1st) so students can get a better idea of how the clubs operate and the planning that goes on behind the scenes.

We will be going over the responsibilities for each open role next year, talking about what events we want to see more/less of, and anything new students want to see added. The current officers from both clubs will be here to answer questions about what they do and can give advice on how to succeed in an officer role. If you are interested in becoming an officer for ACM and/or ACM-W next year, please come to these meetings!

If you have any questions about this, feel free to email us at acm-officers@cs.colostate.edu or acm-w-officers@cs.colostate.edu
