Computer Science Department Club List
WWU ACM works to bring opportunities for professional and personal development, build community, and host events within the Computer Science department. We are open to all identities and majors!
The AGIC (formerly named the AWC - Association for Women in Computing) is here to build an empowering environment for women, non-binary, trans, gender non-conforming, and all people in a gender minority in computer science by providing opportunities for community, networking, professional development, and leadership.
While our new website is under construction, shoot us an email to join! Include your name, pronouns (if you'd like), and the email where you'd prefer to receive club information. Everyone is welcome.
Normal meetings are every Wednesday from 4:00 - 5:00 PM in CF 420.
Come join the Competitive Programming Club if you’ve been putting off interview prep. Our mission is to prepare you to get internships and jobs in a fun, social way. Plus, it sounds cool on your resume! Did you know that when you apply for a programming position, employers will often have you take a timed programming test before they ever talk to you? If you don’t get everything right, they often don’t talk to you again. That’s why it’s important to be working on these skills early, so by the time you’re applying for interviews you know what you’re doing! We also go to the International Collegiate Programming Competition every year, which is a fun school-funded event where you can earn medals and plaques.
When/where are the meetings?
- Monday and Tuesday 4-5:30pm in CF 167
- come either day or both, whatever period of time works for you!
What do meetings look like?
Meetings Spring Quarter will be focused on preparing for interviews. A typical meeting looks like this:
- a 5-10 minute talk, presentation or video about interviews
- a social activity so you can connect with club members
- the rest of the time is spend working on a programming problem similar to one you may get on an interview test
What’s the International Collegiate Programming Competition?
- this competition is a well-regarded competition between programmers from all over the world
- the next regional is this coming fall (fall 2023)
- there are two divisions, so both beginners and advanced programmers can participate
- if you compete in the harder division, you could go all the way up to winning the world champion title
- the actual competition involves teams of 3 trying to solve a big list of programming problems over the course of about 5 hours
- this past competition, the school paid for us to get a hotel and paid for our food each day
- invite your friends and do some traveling on the school’s dime!
The Competitive Programming Club is an inclusive place for anyone from beginner to advanced programmer. It’s also a place to meet some of your peers and do something you need to do while having fun. We hope to see you at our next meeting!

Linux Club is a club dedicated to discussing, learning about, and using Linux along with other open-source software. We aim to provide resources and knowledge regarding these topics to beginners and seasoned users alike. During meetings we generally either work on a project or have a loose presentation on a specific topic. Whether you have a specific question about an issue you're having, or you just want to hang out and chat, we encourage you to give us a visit!
Our current meeting location is CF224, Tuesdays @ 4:30 - 5:30 PM, however we recommend joining our Discord for the most up-to-date information on our meetings. Feel free to email us or contact us on Discord for any further questions.
We discuss object-oriented concepts and take what we learn to create large-scale projects. Object-oriented design is a common approach to designing software and is appealing to have on a resume. It is also great practice for CSCI 345 and an opportunity to expand on concepts taught in that course.
Our club is open to anyone who is interested in software design and/or architecture. No prior object-oriented design experience is required.
Join remotely from our Discord server.

We meet weekly and host quarterly game jams.
