Michigan State University Women in Computing (MSU WIC) is an organization of students and faculty (both men and women) who work to recruit, support, and retain women in computing fields. If you are interested in computing, we would love to see you at our next meeting! We host many events during the semester including tech talks from visiting companies, Lean In Circles, Girl Scout workshops, web development workshops, social events, and more. Check out our calendar and events below to keep up to date or like us on Facebook by searching MSU WIC.
WIC's general meetings and Lean In Circles take place nearly every Tuesday from 6pm-7pm in 2400 Engineering Building. Whether you are a freshman or senior, we would love to see you at our meetings. WIC also hosts a number of social events every semester, so watch out for special announcements regarding those events!
WIC members participate in a number of outreach programs such as organizing after school STEM clubs at local high schools and technology workshops. WIC members also participate in outreach initiatives hosted by MSU's College of Engineering. We hope that these outreach activities have impacted our local community by increasing interest in computing among girls and also increasing their confidence in their ability to learn. If you would like to get involved in any of WIC's outreach programs, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you'd like to reach out to us for any reason, you can email our president, vice-president, treasurer, outreach chair, or corporate relations chair. To reach WIC's advisors, send an email to email@example.com.

It is time for the annual end-of-semester Panda Dinner! Those who come get $5 towards their meal (on a first-come, first-served basis). This is a great way to meet new friends, catch up with old ones, and take a study break from finals! Excited to see you there!
Lean In Circles are small group meetings to share advice and discuss experiences about school, work, and other life events in a supportive, confidential environment. This month's meeting will reflect on Chapter 3 of Lean In and we will be discussing success and likability. There will also be a raffle for cool GE swag! As always, food will be provided.
Hacker Fellows’ team will be here to discuss the Hacker Fellows program (a 1-year fellowship program that assists you with getting a job with early-stage tech companies in Michigan) and what it is like to work in a startup. They will be accompanied by current and past Fellows to answer any questions you may have about the program and about launching a successful career as a young software developer.
