The UP Association of Computer Science Majors, more commonly known as UP CURSOR, is a non-sectarian, non-profit, socio-academic organization composed of people who are passionate about computer science and eventually form long lasting relationships with each other.
"CURSOR, Sexy!" started out as a simple confidence booster to motivate and rally our members in the heat of competition during the annual Engineering Week festivities. Now, it does not only serve as a way to encourage and excite our members, but also helps bring us together as a family.
The simple cheer has evolved into something that encapsulates what we stand for as an organization. "Sexy" is not just a physical manifestation. It's not what's outside, but what's inside that matters. Being CURSOR Sexy is what unites us through our differences. It does not matter what you do or who you are. As long as you can find something that connects you to the organization, you can be part of our family.
Our diversity is what makes us strong. It's what makes us sexy, CURSOR Sexy. Plus, you have to admit, it really makes for a pretty cool cheer.
We integrate our efforts to hold meaningful events that highlight the importance of computer science in our society. Not only do we share our passion for computer science, we also bring out the best in our members through trainings and various interest groups like singing, dancing, and many more.
UP CURSOR, the name we're most famous for, has been our moniker for the longest time. And aside from the fact that cursor is a computer term and it can be spelled out in our name (UP Association of CompUteR Science MajORs), it is important to spell it in all caps, as we are not just a simple cursor.
Though we take inspiration from it, we want to differentiate ourselves from the symbol that helps us navigate in our computers. We are an organization with values and purpose. For that, our name deserves to be capitalized.
