Our theme for this Hack-A-Thon is Virtual Communities!  Ever since the pandemic started, virtual communities have popped up everywhere in an effort to satisfy in-person social interactions.  Therefore, we thought it would be appropriate to see the cool and creative hacks you can come up with to help solve this ongoing issue.

Join Towson's Software Engineering Club for it's first Virtual Hack-A-Thon!
