Congratulations, 2018 grads! Here's a look at the Graduation Picnic! (Keep an eye out for the Larsicorn.)
Rutgers Computer Science is 50! A Celebration of it, with talks on the history of the department, and the future of computer science (and the department's place in it.)
Rutgers Hosted the Greater NY Regional ACM Programming Contest in October of 2010. The event was a great success, with 48 student teams trying to solve computing problems as quickly as possible (in the five hours of the contest) -- the winner going on to the Internationals in March.
On March 26, 2011, over 100 programmers turned up at Rutgers' Hill Center for a 24-hour programming frenzy in search of actualizations of clever ideas and data manipulation. More info on HackRU can be found here.

Video from the DCS Graduation Ceremonies of 2014 (not including images of the graduates of the graduates receiving their diploma, which have yet to arrive from the photographers. But including "the walk in", "the talk" (by Dr. Nguyen), "the walk out", and "the happy time." The 'diploma' part will be added when those images are available.) (May 2014)
Graduation! Grad students with degrees in May 2017 meet to celebrate
In 2003, the Undergraduate Student Alliance of Computer Scientists hosted a panel discussion on Academic Integrity.
Here are links to various video files of interest in the history of computer science. If links go bad (because some are linked to youtube, and may go stale), please send mail to help AT cs.rutgers.edu.
In 1968, Doug Engbard at SRI presented one of the most important -- for computer interaction -- demonstrations ever. In it, he and his associates presented the first example of a computer mouse, AND the first example of a 'chord' keyboard. Mice revolutionized computer interaction (a decade or so later), and we have yet to integrate chord keyboards (so they are presented at least 40 years ahead of their time.) This link will take you to one of several versions of the talk, or if you want, you can jump right to the best one.
