I could get you contact info for Dr. Hu, the head of the CS department there.

I don't know if he could/would, but it might be possible for him to
work it so it's technically the CS club who's hosting the event at
UCA, which would allow free access to facilities like the Student

Otherwise, non-campus organizations are required to purchase ($$$)
food from Aramark.

But it sounds like a good idea! If it's a weekend I'm available, I'll be there!

To be considered stupid and to be told so is more painful than being
called gluttonous, mendacious, violent, lascivious, lazy, cowardly:
every weakness, every vice, has found its defenders, its rhetoric, its
ennoblement and exaltation, but stupidity hasn't. - Primo Levi
