 Next Meeting    Please wait while we fetch the upcoming meeting information...


Student-Run Computing and Technology (SRCT, pronounced "circuit") is a student organization at George Mason University which enhances student computing at our school by developing and maintaining systems that provide specific services for Mason's community.

We were founded in 2011 to be a place where students could work together, share their knowledge, and build really neat projects for the benefit of everyone at Mason, as well as run a host of events to help get students involved.


Projects & Infrastructure

To learn more about SRCT, check out our projects, active, under development, or proposed, or talk to one of the members! Technical documentation is available on our wiki, and all of our code is visible on the public page of our student git repository.

We run projects for the benefit of the community. All of our projects open source so anyone can learn and contribute. Blog consectetur cronut bespoke paleo, elit echo park church-key salvia cred stumptown tempor sapiente. Pariatur raw denim umami try-hard, hammock velit disrupt semiotics neutra.

And of course, we need people to help manage the infrastructure that all of our projects are hosted on. Laboris kogi kickstarter bitters leggings sustainable, irony put a bird on it thundercats YOLO skateboard nulla franzen.


Events & Workshops

You can come to any of our planned events. We hold numerous events each semester, from traveling to hackathons and conferences to doing local outreach, holding large programming events, and hosting speakers.

We hold our own large events around once a month

Sometimes, we host speakers at meetings

We organize Mason contingents to hackathons, intercollegiate programming competitions

We hold workshops at meetings and on weekends to help people learn to computer

 Getting Involved

Get In Touch

We communicate and organize primarily on Slack. Slack is a communication app for teams. If you've used IRC, you'll feel right at home. Head to srct.slack.com, click 'Create an Account', and sign up with your Mason email address.

When you get signed in, you'll will find 'channels' for discussion about all of our projects, events, and a number of other community topics. Join as many channels as you wish if you're interested their respective subjects. You may then want to install Slack's mobile or desktop apps.

Then, sign up for our primary mailing list to get emails around once a month with updates on upcoming events, opportunities, or project releases.

Finally, like our page on Facebook or follow us on Twitter!

Stop On By

There are a couple of opportunities to come and say hello. During the semester, we hold weekly meetings, where we run workshops, work on projects, plan events, and handle administrative and organizational matters. Remember to bring your laptop!

Development meetups are called to push forward work on projects or help students continue to build the skills they need to contribute. They're a little more sporadic, but you're always welcome to join in.

You can also come to any of our major events: all-day workshops, travel to conferences, hosting speakers, and more. Every event goes on our calendar, on our Facebook page, and is announced on our mailing list. You can also join us representing Mason at hackathons.

Whenever you come, make sure to pick up a free SRCT sticker. They look lovely on laptops.
