About Us

The ACM – the Association for Computing Machinery – is an international organization dedicated to promoting computing as a profession. The student chapter of the ACM at YSU’s goal is to extend those same goals to YSU students interested in computing.


Youngstown State University’s student branch of the ACM is a club that promotes the ACM’s mission. The ACM hosts meetings every other Wednesday during the semester as well as tech talks and other events. Membership of the Main ACM is not required to participate in the YSU ACM.

The ACM wishes to extend its members’ involvement in their community. If you have an event that the ACM may be interested in, please contact an officer. The ACM has supported programming competitions, hackathons, math competitions, speakers, and more, and we look forward to supporting more events in the future.
