Our Story


HackCU was started four years ago by a group of passionate students who wanted to provide other students the time and space to work on projects they don’t normally work on through school. Since then we’ve been committed to fulfilling our mission of bringing you high-quality, inclusive events open to people of all levels of experience.

Why You?


Like to write programs? Dig into interesting datasets? Design creative works? Or maybe you’ve never written a line of code? We will provide the space and the resources for you to express your creativity, ingenuity, and determination to create anything you want to. Whether you’re building your first website, dabbling in Photoshop, or hacking with an Oculus Rift, HackCU is for you. HackCU is for people of all backgrounds and experiences. So, come and join us!

FAQ
All the important questions. Answered.


What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is best described as an “invention marathon”. Anyone who has an interest in technology attends a hackathon to learn, build & share their creations over the course of a weekend in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.

What should I bring?

In order to check-in, you must have a government-issued ID. But, you should also bring your laptop, laptop charger, phone, chargers, headphones, a pillow, toiletries, an extra set of clothes, and a reusable water bottle.

Do I have to be a programmer?

Absolutely not! It doesn’t matter if you are a designer, a writer, or a chemist. There is a place for you here. Prior to hacking, there will be a team formation session to help form teams.

Who can attend?

We welcome any student 18 or older to participate!

How much does HackCU cost?

HackCU is absolutely free to attend. We will also provide meals, snacks, and refreshments!

Will you offer travel reimbursement?

Reimbursement applications are now closed.

Can I reuse a previous project?

You can NOT use anything that you have started prior to the event. You can think of ideas for your project, but you must start from scratch when you arrive.

Do I need a team? How large are teams?

Don’t have a team? We got you covered. We will have time before hacking begins for hackers to get together and form teams. You can have a maximum of 4 members on your team.

Will there be food?

Plenty, we will provide three meals a day as well as snacks, drinks, and caffeine.

What if I am not a student?

Be a volunteer or mentor! More information coming soon!
