Graduating Year: 2020

Education: Major in Data Science, Minor in Business Information Systems and Computer Science

Why Computer Science?

"Majors in the Computer Science Department are full of problem solving and challenges, something I knew I wanted in my major. Another drawing point is the wide array of industries that utilize Computer Science, which offers many paths to take post-graduation."

Experimental Learning

"I participated in an internship opportunity with Archer Daniels Midland鈥檚 Data and Analytics team where I worked to build a dashboard of Key Performance Indicators for the various teams in Data and Analytics. This gave me the chance to work on a team with people from different backgrounds, learn how to work with changing deliverables. I also was able to take part in Twitter Data Research with Dr. Marius Truta and Dr. Alina Campan."

Recommendations

"Get involved on campus in as many ways as possible. While course work is the extremely important, there are a lot of skills to be learned outside of the classroom as well. The soft skills I gained through on campus employment and leadership roles in organizations during my time in college have played key roles in allowing me to be successful in various professional opportunities."

After Graduation Plans

"I plan to work full-time, and then also pursue a Master's degree."
