MAA/ACM Joint Student Chapter
literacyday

The Belmont University mathematics and computer science club is a joint Student Chapter of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) and Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). The MAA and ACM are two of the most prominent professional organizations in mathematics and computer science, respectively.aiclass


Our MAA/ACM chapter meets regularly throughout the semester. Each meeting has time for snacks, announcements, and discussion. Sometimes we play a game, other times we have a mini-lecture by a student or professor, but we always have fun! MAA/ACM also sponsors a very popular Game Day each semester at which faculty and students come together to play board games, card games, and video games.

Finally, MAA/ACM performs community service, such as tutoring or helping out with Belmont's Family Literacy Day, each year.

For up-to-date information, pictures, and more, check out the Belmont MAA/ACM Joint Student Chapter webpage.
