As busy UCSC students in on-campus organizations, we found it difficult to keep up with club events and to find new organizations to join. Although SOAR has a basic directory of organizations, the school lacks an interactive website that connects clubs to their members. We wanted to make something both club leaders and students could integrate into their daily lives.
What it does
Displays all the important information on organizations at UCSC on the same page, such as name, email, social media links, and if provided club meeting times, and locations. Allows users to discover new clubs and add events to their personal calendars.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Active participation in the Hackathon. For many of us, this was our first website. We are all fairly new to web development, and we feel we created a website that our school really needs.
What we learned
What's next for ClubsforSlugs
We hope to grow our project and partner with SOAR to bring this user-friendly website to all UCSC students. Our next step is to create a database so that people can easily join a club's email list. We also want to create a log-in system for users and clubs. The users will be able to add clubs and events to their calendar, while the clubs can update their information.
