 ACM-SEMO is a student chapter that is a branch of the international ACM organization. Its focus is on the fostering of interest and learning in the various fields of computer technology. This extends to fields of Computer Science, Networking, Cybersecurity, and Computer Engineering. We host a variety of events, such as hands-on workshops, presentations, social meetups, and trips to other colleges.

Meetings are normally held in Room DH024 at 5:30 PM on Mondays. If somebody wants to join, all they have to do is show up to a meeting and sign in. There are no club dues required.
