About ACM

Dixie State University's Association of Computing Machinery Club, also known as The Computer Club, provides computer enthusiasts a place to meet, form friendships, and share ideas. The club meets every week, alternating between learning workshops, and solving programming problems.

Each fall semester we participate in the A.C.M.'s international programming contest. During the spring semester our club sponsors a local programming contest for Dixie State University students and students from the local high schools.

ACM is held every Thursday at 7:30 in UHB 119. Activities alternate between workshops and programming problem workshops. Workshops consist of a speaker. Programming problem workshops explore interesting and fast ways to solve programming contest problems. See the schedule for upcoming activities.
