We are just a bunch of students, a mixture of majors of varying academic standing attending Western Oregon University (WOU) that recognized the need for greater interaction.

With support from the WOU Computer Science Department and the core group of students involved in starting the Byte Club, we were successfully chartered and recognized by ASWOU in September 2012.


Our overall goals are to open and foster communications, have fun, and assist students in being as successful as they can by providing opportunities for learning beyond the classroom.


We welcome all Western Oregon University students, past alumni and professors to become involved in creating confident and successful students.

To be a member of the official Byte Club there are some restrictions/conditions:


FAST FORWARD - Do you see yourself confident and prepared to step out the doors of the university and into the fresh new world of technology? Are you ready to get started in the job search process and begin your career in computer science or information systems?

Yes? | No?

Either way, your involvement in the Byte Club will be beneficial both for you and for the other students involved. The Byte Club strives for a very open and interactive, relaxed, yet energetic dynamic, where everyone has something to learn. As long as students are open and participate, they will see that there is a great world of information waiting to be shared and consumed.
