Why I Love Computer Science: Coming into college, I honestly had no idea what I wanted to major in due to being passionate about so many fields - astronomy, art, music, logic, math, science. I was never really exposed to computer science until college when I saw that computer science and the problems that we solve are like challenging but rewarding puzzles that relate to any field you could ever image. It excites me that my degree is applicable and useful in any company, that I have a group of classmates that are brilliant and kind, and that we have professors and a department that does everything they can for the students - what more could you ask?
