Why I Love Computer Science: When applying to colleges, I did not know which major would be for me. After researching and talking to a mentor who is a recent CSC grad, I realized that computer science was the major for me. Since arriving to college I have taken several computer science courses starting with the introductory Java course, which was my first programming experience ever. Computer Science has really stuck to me because it has allowed me to express my creativity in very positive way, while at the same time giving me the tools to give back to the community in the future.
