ACM meeting - Don't call it a come back!

Last Wednesday was the first meeting for the ACM (Association of Computing Machinery) this semester. The meeting was to recruit new members to join the club and to tell them what we do in the club. We had a big showing of students and many of them came because they felt like they were in school for a long time but have not done anything beside the classes. I enjoyed meeting new students and talking to many outside of the class settings. What I did not enjoy (and I feel responsible for it) is the lack of directions. putting everyone in one area and asking them to "socialize" is a big mistake. I personally feel awkward in those situations and tend to walk away. Other than that, I think the meeting went well and I am looking forward to the future events.
