Computer Science Mentoring Organization
Northeastern's Computer Science Mentoring Organization serves to better connect Northeastern students who are interested in computer science.
We run a mentorship program every semester where undergraduates who are interested in computer science can get the help they need with classes, co-ops, and more.
CoSMO is open to all. No prior CS experience required!
Rooted in Mentorship
We're providing resources to help guide students interested in Computer Science through our mentorship program. Our program creates an additional layer of support for students entering Northeastern and exploring Computer Science. Beyond the larger CoSMO community, the mentorship program allows students new to Computer Science to connect with an older Khoury student on a more personal level. One-on-one mentorship relationships are great opportunities, whether you have specific questions regarding co-op, adapting to life as a student at Northeastern, or a career in computer science.
The mentorship program runs during both the fall and spring semesters. Sign-ups are currently open for mentors and mentees. No experience is necessary to join the program, and everyone who signs up will be paired with a mentor.

Open and Collaborative Environment
Apart from the mentorship program, CoSMO doesn’t have any sort of permanent membership, so feel free to pop into any of our other meetings! Our goal is to bring a variety of programming and introduce students to new experiences on campus and in the Boston area by collaborating with other student led organizations. There are so many opportunities to discover, and we’d love to help you find the next piece of your journey!
Diverse and Growing Community
We're creating an environment where students can meet other students interested in Computer Science. Having a network of people to reach out to who have gone through or are going through similar things (such as applying to co-ops, taking the same classes) and creating that community is something many have found beneficial in their early years and beyond!
CoSMO plans events where students are able to meet others and start to make connections, or at the very least learn about different viewpoints and aspects of computer science from their peers.
