Major: Computer Science

Extracurricular Activities: I was in Chorale for four years, I have a [leadership role] in the Computer Science Student Advisory Board, and I worked as a Career Fellow.

Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
I love music but have never done anything too official with it before, so having Chorale, which is open to everyone, was really great because it was a good way for me to work with music a little more seriously and it was really fun. It was a great way to destress after class.

The Computer Science Student Advisory Board gave me the opportunity to work with faculty very closely. I got to understand the inner-workings of academia, like, the hiring process, what they need to do to give professors tenure, and how to construct a curriculum. We also organized a lot of events and created a lot of resources for students in the department to help them prepare for a career which helped me a lot in my own professional development. I think the department really listens to the student’s concerns and are really great.
