|Life on CIF|

Aside from the occasional flamewar, CIF is a close-knit, friendly community. Even people who would otherwise hide in their dorm rooms find at least some social aspect of CIF compelling enough; whether it's beating each other senseless in Playstation games or cooking meals. Activities on floor range from the everyday events, such as hanging out in our lounges, talking, watching TV together, eating or playing video games, to the often monthly theme movie nights, the bi-weekly floor meetings, helping with CIF services, going out to floor dinners, doing community service as a group, and the semesterly CIFnic picnic.
One of CIF's founding goals was to provide, to the University community, computing services and assistance. One of those services is computer education. CIF teaches classes on a semesterly basis, depending on need and interest. CIF also administers SquareTable, the University's only public recreational UNIX server, where many undergraduates keep their personal websites. CIF maintains its own computer lab, which is available to any undergraduate upon signup. Finally, CIF provides technical assistance via email through the help@cif technical support service.
