Frequently attends Penn State hackathons, and will continue to do so this year.

Conrad Weiser – Vice President

A sophomore going after a Software Engineering degree. Coming from a family of engineers, project work has always been something He has loved to tackle in my free time. Despite having interests in a wide variety of computing topics, one of my favorite topics is Computer Security. He is hoping to either minor, or has multiple certificates for SRA qualifications by the time that he graduates. Outside of the computer fields, he really enjoys hiking in the summer, and skiing in the winter. His favorite language is Java.

Katie Chuzie – Treasurer

A senior studying Software Engineering, she has been a member of ACM for two years and this is my second year as treasurer. She has attended multiple hackathons while being a member of ACM such as Local Hack Day here at Behrend the last two years as well as WICHacks at RIT the last two years. She has had two different internship experiences during my time at Behrend at both TechnipFMC here in Erie, PA and Microsoft in Redmond, WA. Her specific interests are in the field of cybersecurity which is what my internship focused on this past summer at Microsoft and what she will be doing as a full time employee at Microsoft following graduation. She believes joining ACM is a great opportunity to network and learn new skills from fellow students in computing.
