Student Activities

ACM Programming Contest

The Association of Computing Machinery’s International Collegiate Programming Contest (ACM-ICPC) takes place annually. Three-member teams from competing colleges and universities are given five hours and one computer to solve eight programming problems. Scoring is based not only on accuracy but also on the time taken to devise a solution. With 163 teams, the Mid-Atlantic region is the largest in the United States and third largest in the world. Washington College has a been a regional host site for the Mid-Atlantic region since 2002.

Tutoring and Mentoring

The Math Center is an academic resource available to all members of the Washington College community. Students may pursue tutoring and course mentoring opportunities.

Colin Hollingsworth Tutor Endowment

In the fall of 2013, the Quantitative Skills Center of Washington College received a generous gift to establish an endowment for a tutor’s salary. The gift was made in honor of Colin Hollingsworth, a graduate of Washington College in 1933.

The Colin Hollingsworth Tutor Endowment provides a salary for a selected tutor throughout each academic year. In addition to academic abilities, the tutor will be selected based on leadership potential and passion for helping others. The student selected will continue to serve as a tutor in the Quantitative Skills Center but will also take on the added responsibility of helping the Director with the training of new tutors and serving as a mentor and resource for the entire staff.
