Reading Groups

Inspired by MIT's URGE program, the ACSU has initiated our own undergraduate Reading Groups.
Our reading group are open for anyone who is interested, regardless of background.


ACSU Reading Groups are small groups of less than 10 undergraduate students that meet regularly to discuss technical papers in a casual learning environment. These groups are open to anyone who is interested, regardless of background. Each reading group has a leader who is responsible for choosing the technical paper and facilitating the discussions. The participants read the paper beforehand, come prepared with 1-2 questions, and join the discussion.
