We are a club that tries to challenge students to get really really good at problem solving. There is a very low entry barrier to getting started. Our meetings will introduce fun twists on classical algorithms, and provide interesting problems to work on your problem-solving abilities. Many recruits find the difficulty barrier daunting, but after continued exposure, problems that used to seem impossible will seem almost trivial!
The Competitive Programming Club at Ohio State ("CPC") is aimed at supporting students to participate in programming contests, and other events including hackathons, research, and open-source.
We hold weekly meetings in Fall and Spring semesters. The qualifier round of yearly ACM-ICPC is also held by us. Finally, we gather groups and discuss competitions such as Google Hash Code, Google Code Jam, Battlecode, and CMIMC.
