Welcome to the Fall Semester!

I hope everyone had a fantastic summer and first day of classes. I would especially like to extend a warm welcome to all of our new freshmen and transfer students.

The Association of Computing Machinery is the professional organization for Computer Science students here at UA. Getting involved is one of the best ways to adjust to college life and meet new people. At ACM, we aim to serve the students both socially and academically. We meet every other week to discuss breaking tech news, listen to talks from faculty, students, and companies, and just generally have a good time. We also program several social events each semester. Our events from last semester included card/board game nights, movie nights, a St. Patrick’s Day potluck, and a bowling night.  We have another exciting semester in the works, so everyone should stay tuned.

Our first official meeting with be  Tuesday, September 2nd at 5:15pm. We will send out another email to remind you guys and let you know what room it will be in. In the meantime we will have a table set up at Get on Board Day, so make sure to stop by to introduce yourselves.

If you all were not aware, the CS department offers a Software Engineering concentration. This is a really exciting opportunity if you are interested in software engineering as it fits in nicely with the CS curriculum. Computer Security (CS428) has been newly designated as meeting a requirement in the software engineering specialization. To find out more information, you can check out the webpage  here<http://cs.ua.edu/undergraduate/software-engineering/>.

If you have any questions about ACM, the CS department, or college life in general, please do not hesitate to contact me or any of the other ACM officers.

Roll Tide!
