Get Involved - Loyola CS Clubs

Loyola University Chicago has many clubs and organizations for students who are interested.

Girls Who Code

The Loyola Center for Textual Studies and Digital Humanities is proud to host its very own chapter of Girls Who Code. According to the Girls Who Code website, "computing is where the jobs are — and where they will be in the future, but fewer than 1 in 5 computer science graduates are women." Our Saturday morning program is a great way for girls to learn real-world computer coding skills while working with friendly and professional volunteers. You can find more information here.

Don't Panic!

DON’T PANIC! CS is a club to help you develop your CS skills independent of the level you are currently at. It’s also the go-to place at Loyola to come and geek out about all CS related things, learn something from your peers, and make some friends, all in a judgement free zone. You can find more information here.

Cybersecurity Club

Loyola's Cybersecurity club is a group where you can take your cyber security knowledge and skills learned in the classroom, and apply them in simulated, hands-on hacking challenges. We expand on skills in various cyber categories like reverse engineering, cryptography, programming, web vulnerabilities, binary exercises, steganography, forensics, networking, and more. We meet a few times every semester in-person as well as frequently online via the Loyola University Capture The Flag (LUCTF) team. LUCTF is an extension of the Cybersecurity club where we compete online in hacking challenges against different University and other professional teams around the world. Both the Cybersecurity club and the LUCTF team are open to all skill levels from no experience to advanced. To join the club you can get in contact with Professor Eric Chan-Tin who makes periodic announcements for club meetings. The LUCTF team requires online registration. First go to the CTFtime website and make an account, and request to join 'LUCTF'. Then use your Loyola email to join our slack channel to keep up with all communications regarding the team using this invite link.
