The Computer Club

The Computer Club at Western Michigan University exists to promote a better understanding of computers for both members of the club and members of the WMU community. This goal is achieved through various club projects, member presentations, Linux Install Parties, and discussions at our meetings. Do you need help getting your computer to function properly? Are you interested in installing Linux? Do you just want a place to hang out and have a good time? If the answer to any of those questions or any other question is 'yes' then you should come check us out. We welcome anyone (regardless of computer experience) who is willing to share whatever talents they have, listen to others, and have a good time. [more]
