College Loops

College Loops are on-campus organizations that serve as the main point of contact for Girls Who Code. They offer monthly challenges focusing on cultivating computer science skills and engaging women to take action, collaborate, and innovate. Women Who Compute became the official College Loop for UT Dallas in 2019, and is currently working on integrating more events for members to network within the Girls Who Code community!
