Organized by SJC student and Rubik’s Cube champion, Rowe Hessler, in connection with the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the Office of Student Life, the contest will bring more than 50 individuals from around the country and all over the world together to compete in a series of Rubik’s Cube events ranging in levels of difficulty.

“I have enjoyed working with Rowe Hessler and [ACM President] Paul Scala in planning this event,” Associate Director of Co-Curricular Programs Celeste Guarneri said. “Rowe is a huge talent and SJC is lucky to have him. I look forward to seeing this event on campus again.”

The competition will conclude with the presentation of a prize bag, donated by the Office of Student Life, to the day’s winner. Contestants paid a $5 fee for themselves and guests upon registration. Proceeds will go towards the purchase of supplies and food for the event as well as a designated charity.
