Why I Love Computer Science: I chose to major in computer science because I love how it combines critical thinking and creativity to solve real-life problems. It's also extremely interdisciplinary, meaning I can incorporate my passions and interests from other fields, such as psychology, into my degree. However, the thing I love most about computer science is its fluidity. We can see technology evolving in front of our eyes, and I'm really excited about developments in cybersecurity and artificial intelligence. I hope to explore these interests in industry after college!
