Computer nerds offer tech support for makeovers

Posted: Updated:

PULLMAN, Wash. - Looking to recruit more women, the largest computer club at Washington State University is preparing a "nerd auction."

The idea is to trade their computer skills to sorority girls in exchange for a makeover and, possibly, a date.

Members of the Linux Users Group say they hope to improve the image of nerds and also to increase the number of women in the group and taking computer science classes.

They have spoken to several sororities, but so far none has committed to the project.
