Greetings ACM Members,
Your friendly campus news-poster here putting in a little work keeping you up to date about our chapter and the goings-on on campus There is quite a bit to look forward on both ACM’s calendar and campus in general.
Google is coming to campus on Wednesday March 6th from 6-7pm in Kochoff A, to recruit for full time positions through their FixIT Challenge Event. The event is being coordinated through Career Services and Mai Qazzaz. All interested should RSVP to goo.gl/RPEQm. The attendance has been limited to 40.
On Thursday March 7th, at 6:30pm in CIS room 121, Compuware will be coming to talk to ACM about the professional development programs available to graduating seniors and possible internships for current students. Refreshments will be provided.
On Wednesday, March 20th at 6:30pm in CIS Rm. 121, Urban Science is coming out to talk about the opportunities available to students through their company. The location is still to TBD, but expect it to be in CIS 121.
On Wednesday, April 3rd at 6:30pm in a location TBD, ACM has invited DTE to campus to talk about the many opportunities they are offering students in both full-time positions and internships. All students from the College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) are invited as well as student from the School of Business.
Please check out the calendar for more details about ACM’s schedule as well as other CECS organizations on the U of M – Dearborn campus.
We’re sure its getting to around that time in every student’s schedule where the semester’s tasks are starting to pile-up. Remember to stay calm, and work through it. Ask for help and spend some time in your teachers office hours. The more they see your face, the better you will do.
If you have any questions about anything presented here, please contact “officers DOT acm DOT umd AT umich DOT edu” for more information.

Greetings Fellow Travelers of the Digital Realm,
I would like to thank everyone who came out to ACM’s game night and enjoyed themselves. Thanks to everyone for being a part of my first Cards Against Humanity experience! If anyone is interested in holding another game night, please do email the officers at firstname.lastname@example.org. The more requests that we get, the more likely we are to hold the event! And I promise, no more escorts out the building by public safety
There is a new calendar available for all the engineering organizations. ACM events will be posted here as well as other events from UPE, DCE, Theta Tau, etc. that you may interested in. The calendar is available on the ACM website, and there is a general meeting on Tuesday October 16th!
I would also like remind the membership that though ACM does provide a social context for programmers to get to know one another, we also have a responsibility to provide academic and professional reinforcement that will help you in the real world. The officers of ACM hope that you will take advantage of the events that we put on related to your life “after school” just as much as the social ones. They are for your benefit.
Wednesday, October 10th Jamie Delemeester, a recruiter from Compuware, will be coming to speak to students. Compuware really likes the graduates that come from UM-D. They are currently looking for employees. They spoke in the CIS 487 and CIS 376 classes and it looks like a really great place to work. Please show up. It does not matter how many years you have left. She has had contact with sophmores and remained in contact with them until they graduated (and then hired them). She said that if we get enough people to come she will buy the pizza. Let’s show Compuware that UM-D CIS students are very interested in working for Compuware. From what I have learned from college is: what you learn is only part of what you get out of college. You need to make contacts with people. Other students, professors, and companies. I will be sending out reminder emails about this event and a location once I get an idea of how many people are going to show up. I would love for the entire CIS student body to be in attendance.
ACM will be holding a programming competition on Wednesay, September 19th from 6pm – 10pm in the CIS Lab. There are prizes to be had and chops to be shown so come and show your skills against your peers. Experience isn’t necessary and programmers of all skill levels are welcome. There will multiple problems presented from all skill levels giving all participants a chance to compete.
One of the prizes that is offered is a waiver of local chapter dues for ACM. Exciting!! We look forward to seeing you there.
The next ACM General Meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 25th at 8:30 p.m. We look forward to seeing everyone there and will bring a little fun and competitive debate while announcing the winners of the programming competition that will be hosted on September 19th from 6pm to 10pm in the CIS lab.
