Abstraction hosts several LAN parties throughout each semester for people to come and hang out with friends while playing a wide range of computer games like Minecraft, Artemis, League of Legends, BZ Flag, and many more.
Abstraction hosts Zombiefest every semester where recently over a hundred people with Nerf guns roam the DH, SB, and NH complex quelling the threat of the next zombie apocalypse. Much fun is had as we play from a select of game modes such as Capture the Flag, Search and Destroy, VIP, and even a little PvP.
Recently Abstraction has started up a hands on learning workshop during one of the CS 195/295 colloquiums. The workshop topic could include “How to Use Unix Commands”, “How to Build Your Own Computer”, “How to Install Your Own Linux OS”, and several others. This is done once per semester and attendees get credit towards their CS 195/295 requirement.
Every spring Abstraction members head out into our local neighborhood and provide free computer tune-up services. As a spring cleaning and a chance to give back to the community that helps support Calvin, this event is a great opportunity to minister to others.
