Ram Hacks

What is Ram Hacks?

As URI’s Official Computer Science Interest Group, our mission is to create an environment for Computer Science majors, and those interested in related topics, to network and collaborate.

What does Ram Hacks do?

A little of everything! Ram Hacks welcomes people of all majors and practices to join together and discuss their interest in computers and electronics. We allow students to showcase personal projects, discuss homework questions, and organize movie and game nights. And for those who would be interested, we also regularly create programming challenges for our members to tackle and upload for review during the meetings!

When does Ram Hacks meet?

We meet every other Thursday (starting on Jan 31, 2019) at 5:00PM in Tyler Hall room 049. Just follow the smell of pizza! Meetings will typically be roughly an hour long. Check out our Calendar for updates.

Who runs Ram Hacks?

Our current president is Daniel Gauthier. He is supported by Vice President Ryan Kelley, Treasurer Marissa Gagnier, Secretary Cassie Archetto, and Web Development Officer Logan Misturado. We also have the backing and continued support of many professors and graduate students in the department. Input from all members is always welcome.

Who can join?

We welcome all new freshmen who are joining the Department of Computer Science as well as students from all other majors. No prior experience is required or necessary; stop by and check us out! If you are looking to get started, further your knowledge, or share what you already know, there is no better place.
Ram Hacks is a great opportunity for you to meet others interested in computer science and technology and make new connections. Students who are going into careers in the field are especially encouraged to participate. This is a great way to practice hard and soft skills that employers are looking for!
