Co-President

Vivian Liu

Hi! I’m Vivian and I’m a junior studying computer science and data science. I’m particularly interested in the intersection between tech and art, and video game design and development just happens to align with my interests! I love being able to create an environment for people to meet others with similar interests and build really cool projects. Please consider checking us out and seeing the games our talented members have built if you haven’t already!
