Are you a hacker at heart? Do you dream of cracking codes, breaking firewalls, and exposing secrets? Have you ever been curious about how the internet stays safe? Tinkered around a site, trying to find exploits? Well, then Slug Security, UC Santa Cruz's Cybersecurity Club, may be for you!
Would you like to learn how to hack into servers, create malware, and avoid detection like a true hacker? Do you want to use a Pringles can to make directional antennas and scan for vulnerable networks? Do you want to compete in national competitions, going against other hackers to see who is the best?
Then join us! We are a student-led cybersecurity club dedicated to fostering a community of hackers who work to improve security.
We host workshops and actively compete in CTF and national competitions such as the NSA Codebreaker Challenge.
We meet every Monday from 2-4 PM at Baskin Engineering 2, Room 506.

Thank you to those who have already shared our free virtual conference with all of your slug students and colleagues. We have two very exciting updates to share with you!
We're so happy to welcome Jeremy Almond as our opening keynote speaker for NEST Flight 2023. Jeremy is the co-founder and CEO of Paystand, a Fin-tech company based in Scotts Valley, CA. Jeremy was raised in Stockton, CA and was the first to graduate college and attend graduate school from his family. Students can join us at NEST Flight 2023 to hear his inspiring story and connect with him. His company is growing & hiring!

Tau Beta Pi, the oldest Engineering Honor Society, was established in 1885 and has initiated over 500,000 members. Our chapter here at UCSC (California Alpha Delta) was installed on March 8, 2008. We invite students of exemplary character and academic achievement to join Tau Beta Pi twice a year, including Juniors in the top eighth and Seniors in the top fifth of the engineering class. Invitations to join this Honor Society will be sent out by the Dean in the following weeks, so keep an eye on your email. We hope to see you at initiation!
