ACM students take Second Place in PACISE Programming Contest

Brian Fekete, Jacob Daniel,and Brett Logan took Second Place
A nine-member programming squad from Bloomsburg University's ACM student chapter competed at Edinboro University in the PACISE 2017 programming contest on Saturday, March 31, 2017. Seniors Jacob Daniel, Brian Fekete, and Brett Logan took Second Place overall among 15 teams from the PASSHE school system. Squad members Jared Frank, John Gibson, Laura Josuweit, Daniel Kilgallon, Luke Vuksta, and Rio Weber also did well, taking Fourth and Eighth Places. This is the third year in a row that a Bloomsburg team has taken second at PACISE contests. It is also the largest squad the ACM chapter has fielded, and augurs well for future contests. BU's Department of Mathematical and Digital Sciences is a member of PACISE, the Pennsylvania Association of Computer and Information Science Educators, representing computer programs across the PASSHE member schools. The programming squad coach, Dr. Robert Montante, represents BU at PACISE. He is also a member of ACM, an international professional organization of computer scientists and computer science educators with student chapters at many schools.
