Activities: The Computer Science Association sponsored guest lectures, meet-the-prof nights, monthly parties, movie and pizza nights, a Christmas Ball, sleigh rides, Winter Carnival floats, a grad dinner, and an annual roadtrip.

Note(s): Computer Science became an official faculty at UNB in 1989.

In 1983 the Computer Science Association's hockey team won the intramural hockey championships.

In 1996 two members competed in the Atlantic Computer Programmer Competition.
