  • Carleton CS students did a great job on Saturday, November 9, both in hosting and competing in the Regional ACM Programming Contest.  Thanks to the volunteers that helped throughout the day as well as unofficially competing themselves (Emily Johnston, Ken Schiller, Sean Mullen) and to Mike's student workers (Casey Goodge, Lila Conlee, Cole Stephan, Rachel Adams) who reacted quickly to every crisis and kept the whole thing going smoothly.  Also of course to Mike and Sue for lots of work setting the whole thing up and to the rest of Carleton student participants (Calder Coalson, Carissa Knipe, Daniel Alabi, Daniel Simmons-Marengo, Jack Hessel, Nao Hiranuma, Josh Lipstone) for the stellar clean-up efforts at the end of the day!  

    All Carleton teams performed well, with the 2 official teams finishing 1st and 3rd of the 11 teams at our site, and 15th and 52nd of the 260 teams in the region.  The top Carleton team (Calder, Carissa, and Daniel A) was the 5th team in the region to successfully complete 2 problems and stayed close to the leaders for the majority of the competition.  Congrats to all competitors and thanks again for all of the help!
