MIGHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY

SPARTAN HACKERS

A group of students that learn more, collaborate better, and create projects.

What is Spartan Hackers?

Spartan Hackers exists to foster a community of technological innovation, collaboration, and creation at Michigan State University.

To rephrase, we build cool tech projects by working with others.

What We Do?

Hackathons

The majority of what we do is go to Hackathons! Hackathons are 24-48 hour coding competitions and the fastest way to build real projects. While you're hacking, you can get to know representatives from companies like Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and more! Plus, every hackathon is filled to the brim with free food.

Workshops

Spartan Hackers hosts events where students hang out, work on projects, share ideas, and learn about cool new technologies. We strive to create an environment where it's easy to meet some of the students at the forefront of innovation at MSU.

Previous Workshop Topics: Github Source Control, Microsoft Azure, Prep for the Technical Interview Algorithms, Hackerrank, Unity, HTML/CSS, iOS, and Android.

Company Speakers

Spartan Hackers invites companies in the industry to come and share their experiences with us. These are also a great way to network with those companies and possibly land a full-time or internship position with them.

How can I join?

Attend Events!

Anyone with a computer and desire to learn can become a hacker. We have weekly meetings and all are invited!

Most students require transportation for Hackathons. Bus requests are processed a week or two before a hackathon’s start date. Remember those with offical acceptance emails have priority seating. In some cases if you do not have an acceptance email you are still welcome to come if seating is available, we’ll let you know.

Stay Connected!

By doing all of these things you’ll be notified of all our events. Explore the computer science community, learn useful skills, and make friends along the way.
