ICU offered help to new students in organizing their studies and has a vivid club-live around the topic of computer science.
i became a member and immediately made new friends there. by now i have many friends and good connections at the universty to which i found through the ICU. i wouldn't say the ICU is my life, but it certainly was a major part of my student-life at the university. i'd recommend it to every new computer science student to join. it doesn't take more of your time than you want, but it can be of great value for your studies.
during my time at the unviersity i got a little more involved and i became a member of the board of directors of the club. since the end of my studies, i am just a regular rather passive member of the ICU, just to keep in touch.
