Upcoming Events Around Campus

The fall semester is in full swing. In between your classwork, social life, and work, you may want to squeeze a few of these upcoming events into your schedule:


When: November 5-6, 2016

Where: College Park, MD

What is it?

​Technica is the University of Maryland's all-women hackathon. Over the duration of 24 hours, women are immersed in tech culture and encouraged to exercise their imagination to create interesting and innovative hacks. Technica is diverging from the typical hackathon as we encourage gender diversification, and ask sponsors to hack alongside students in order to build stronger connections between students, sponsors, and the tech world.
