Student Groups

Association for Computing Machinery – Student Chapter

Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) – Student Chapter is a self-governing student organization in the Department of Computer Science. Our main purpose is to build a strong coalition of competitive programmers through rigorous training and teamwork so that VCU can climb higher in the ladder rankings of the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest. We encourage all students who enjoy programming, working in teams and learning more about computer science to get involved. Any other major with a strong foundation in math and problem solving are also welcomed as their background offers an invaluable advantage in the ACM Programming Contest.
