February 27, 2010 - Students Participate in Denison Spring Programming Contest

Albion's team comprised of seniors Robbie Sessions and Mike Smar participated in the 21st Annual Denison Spring Programming Contest held at Denison University in Granville, Ohio. This year, 11 teams from 7 schools (Denison, Albion, Baldwin-Wallace, Oberlin, Muskingum, Ohio Wesleyan, and U of Akron) competed in this 4-hour contest. Albion's team placed 7th, and only two teams solved more problems then Albion. All teams placing above Albion's team had four members, resulting in Albion solving more problems per team member than any other team. Professor David Reimann coordinated Albion's participation in the contest and traveled with the students to Denison University. Albion has regularly competed in the contest since 1997. Final standings for all teams are available at the contest site.
