Association of Computing Machinery - Women
The Florida State University chapter of ACM-Women was created in 2008 to expand the current Women in Computer Science group and give members access to ACM resources.
Women in Computing Society/Women in Computer Science
Women in Computing Society was an organization at Florida State University which aimed to promote computing to female students in all computing fields.
The STARS Alliance (Students & Technology in Academia, Research, & Service) is a NSF-funded effort to increase the participation of under-represented minorities, women, and persons with disabilitiesin computing diciplines. In the fall of 2006 I helped mentor gifted middle school students from the School of Arts and Science (SAS). Specifically, I assisted the students in making interactive games and movies using the Alice 3D programming environment. I also helped manage and participated in the Computing Careers Night efforts of 2006 and 2007. Computing Careers Night introduced high school students, their parents, and guidance counselors to computing careers and education. In 2007 I led the logistical preparation team as a graduate student leader.

Upsilon Pi Epsilon (UPE) is an international organization and honor society which recognizes academic excellence at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in the Computing and Information Disciplines. The UNI chapter was installed on April 20, 2002, and has inducted distinguished UNI computer science students since then.
