Google Developer Student Club

The Google Developer Student Club had a fantastic fall semester. Club president Samia Afrin ’25 reports a record 137 new members joined, bringing total membership to more than 360. The Core Team is more than 60 percent women.

First launched in 2019, the club helps students bridge the gap between theory and practice in computer science and software engineering by using Google developer technologies.

For example, the club is building an application to help customers make better environmentally friendly purchases and plans to enter the project in the Google Solutions Challenge later this year.

The club hosts a wide range of technical to nontechnical events, recently including an introduction to extended reality and a Git and GitHub Workshop, technical interview practice, trivia night, navigating a first job offer, and a meeting with Interstride CEO Nitin Agrawal. If you would like to check out this club, drop by 307 Rettner Hall from 4-5 p.m. each Friday.

Computer science students Kestor Brown and Kayla Lin are new member educators for the club.
