The Columbia Data Science Society (CDSS) is an interdisciplinary society that promotes data science across Columbia University and the New York City community. 


We believe that the key to data science lies in its interdisciplinary scope, so we strongly encourage students from all backgrounds to join us. There's no need to be an expert -- all we ask for is excitement and a willingness to help. Everyone is welcome!
