Did you come to Wheaton knowing you wanted to major in Computer Science?

I had no idea I wanted to major in Computer Science! I was in Mark's FYS (Storytelling Through Computer Animation) and I wanted to try taking another CS class after that. I took 115 with Tom, and decided this was something I wanted to major in.

What has been the most interesting class you've taken in the Computer Science Curriculum?

I really enjoyed Comp 111, Foundations of Computing Theory. It was great learning about how Computing began and the basic theories behind it, which I had never learned before. It also showed me that there's more to Computer Science than just sitting at a computer and programming.

What are your plans for after graduation?

I'd like to go to grad school after I graduate. I'm interested in a field called Human-Computer Interaction, which is basically a combination of Psychology, Computer Science and Design. I'm looking into schools that have those kinds of graduate programs.
