Student organizations and clubs provide opportunities to meet new people with similar interests, learn new skills, share your talent, and help you become more connected to campus life. The Department of Computer Science at the College of Charleston offers several opportunities for students to engage in organizations, activities, and immerse in the CS “code life”. The CofC Association of Computing Machinery, or ACM, is an organization to discuss and share interest in computer science. CofC ACM is a student chapter of the Association of Computing Machinery, the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society, delivering resources that advance computing as a science and a profession.
Overseen by Dr. Olmsted, ACM is looking forward to the 2014-2015 Academic year. The computer science club plans to reorganize and rebuild the local chapter to better serve the students and the community. Focusing on the various spectrums of technology, the club is open to ideas and discussions driven by student interest. As ACM Chapter President, Ronald Zielaznicki, “hopes people will come and learn useful skills to apply toward computer science and feel more confidence in their abilities.”
The CofC ACM plans to kickstart a fundraiser initiative in order to support the local chapter. Plans are underway, help is needed, and encouraged. To help fundraise, contact ACM Chapter President, Ronald Zielaznicki, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
