In the mid 1990s, Knox's Computer Science department formally separated itself from the Mathematics department. Since that time, the department has periodically been plagued by faculty turnover. This trend has thankfully remitted in recent years.
Labs and Offices
- Caterpillar Lab - in the basement of the South wing, featuring 20 dual-processor Linux workstations.
- Steylles - next door to the Caterpillar Lab, and across the hall from the Computer Center.
- The "sandbox" lab (a.k.a., the "Crash and Burn" lab) - on the north side of SMC (hidden somewhere in hyperspace between the Math Library and the window that looks out on the apartments)
- The Little Lab - on the 2nd floor, next door to Dooley's office, which is particularly quiet and nice to work in
- The Honors Lab - home to the Mathematica server, and lonesome Honors students
Since 2002, the faculty of the Computer Science department has primarily used Mac workstations.
