As the Wake Forest University ACM student chapter grows, we are interested in exemplifying the Wake Forest University motto “Pro Humanitate” (for humanity) through growing our presence in the community. Both the Wake Forest University community and the Winston-Salem community alike can benefit from computer science. Listed below are our some of the events we hosted in the 2012 – 2013 school year:
- Guest Speaker: Dennis Frailey, a distinguished ACM speaker presented a talk entitled “Careers in Computing: How to Prepare and What to Expect”.
- Quiz Bowl: At the end of the semester, we hosted a trivia and final exam prep for students interested in Computer Science. We had food and prizes for all attendees, and brought together students from all levels in the CS department.
- Game Nights: We hosted multiple video gaming nights for Wake Forest students and faculty, many consoles and multiple projectors. Food and drink are always included.
- Wake @ Hanes: During the summer, Professors Cho and Pauca received a grant from Google to host a workshop for middle and high school teachers. Together with ACM members, they taught basic programming and computer science lessons to these local teachers.
We have many events planned for the 2013-2014 year, so stay tuned for more info!
