PRESIDENT – CONOR LEE
Hey, my name is Conor Lee. I study computer science at QUB, I joined QCS in my first year and ended up on the committee. I was really unsure about university when I started though the society has helped me meet a ton of awesome people that have really changed the way I thought about my course and what I want to do.
I think that it is an amazing thing to be part of and would highly recommend everyone getting involved with the society and going to the events and it is usually good craic and you get the chance to talk to a lot of people that can help you out with problems that you are bound to run into. You also can find out about some good opportunities and the likes through the society and that can even change your idea of what you want to do when you finish your course.
But basically it is a good thing to be part of and there are a lot of people involved in the society so you’ll never be stuck with an idea and no one to help you work on it.
