'02 CS Alumnus Opinion Piece entitled "A life in computers"

Monday, April 11, 2022
"I didn’t think I wanted to write software. Well, one semester and one week into my freshman year, I walked out of a computer science lecture (required for actuaries) knowing in my soul that I was in the wrong major. I went to my advisor, changed to computer science and never looked back. Twenty years later, I’m very lucky that I get to exercise my passion at my job with people who share the same love for computers and software that I do."
