<section title="What... is your quest?">
<p>
Again our lovely <a href="constitution">constitution</a> (it
really <i>is</i> quite a read, see for yourself!) answers this
question. In short, we exist to promote knowledge of and interest
in computer science as well as allowing those interested in
computer science to talk to each other. We have an <a
href="../office/">office</a> where members get together, a
library of computer
science books available to our members, computer accounts on our various
machines and much more. Frequently we host <a
href="../events/">events</a> related to computing, including talks,
tutorials and demonstrations.
