    wrt openSUSE and free software per the Free Software Foundation definition of free (which is also open source), the wiki reference is here (in case you have not seen it): Free Software Philosophy - openSUSE

    The chances are there are already students, staff and techies using Linux. Your best bet is to locate a techie or academic staff member employed by the university who is able to access resources to assist the society.

    john_hudson is right, look for users among the staff of the chemistry,
    physics, mathematics, engineering or information technology departments..

    or, i guess there is an IT branch for the university itself: you know,
    to do payroll, class scheduling, student records etc....i bet every
    secretary has a computer running Windows which is connected to a
    database somewhere, and it is likely that db lives on Linux, Unix, Sun
    or other...and, all of the folks feeding and caring for the db and
    their machines can be helpful, if they wanna be..

    what is the web site URL for the school?

    i see on the site that the College of Engineering offers a bachelors
    degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering, Computer
    Engineering, and Information Technology..

    i highly doubt any of those degrees can be earned without courses in
    Linix, BSD and other open source software....check it out....if you
    find those courses are producing graduates with only Window's
    training, well... you are in the wrong school (imo)...but, since there
    the society you wish to start is a *great* idea!!
