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 2243 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 email@example.com.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
