Its purpose is to enhance the appreciation for computer science in both students and faculty, to encourage further study in computer science, and to provide opportunities to explore new developments and careers in the field of computer science.
What does the ACM do?
The Loras ACM Club has many events throughout the year. These events range from the informative to the fun. The club takes trips to places of interest, including IBM in Rochester, MN. In addition, the club sponsors talks by faculty from Loras and other colleges. Each year, several social gatherings are held to allow students to mingle with faculty, along with their peers. Traditionally, the club enjoys Christmas Caroling and the Year-End Picnic with the Loras College Mathematics Club. The club is also involved in a service project each year.
