The ACM chapter at the University of Connecticut provides a voice for student concerns about computer-related issues and a venue for educational enrichment. While membership primarily consists of students who will go on to be computer science professionals after graduation, membership is open to anyone with an interest in computer science. UCONN-ACM organizes and promotes group activities, such as visits to computer-related businesses, conferences, and museums. During weekly meetings we discussion relative political issues regarding computing, have guest speakers/lecturers, promote internships and co-ops within computer science, practice ICPC programming questions, plan and organize off campus hackathon events, as well as whiteboard code/pair program. These activities are intended not only to further our knowledge of computer systems, but also help us build a cohesive community of computing enthusiasts.
UCONN-ACM also periodically invites guest speakers to make presentations at UCONN for our collective enrichment. ACM members are encouraged to attend these presentations, as are any interested community members. Members are also encouraged to reach out if they desire a specific speaker to come to the University.
