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

Coming into Wheaton, I actually intended to major in Math, but I took Robots, Games and Problem Solving as an elective first semester of freshman year and ended up loving it. By the end of the semester I was sure that I wanted to major in computer science.

What is your favorite programming language and why?

My favorite programming language would change based on what I'm doing, but if I had to I would choose C++ since it's the language that I'm most familiar with and find most intuitive.

What are your plans for after graduation?

As of now, my post graduation plans are pretty vague, but I hope to get a job in computer science and then at some point maybe go to grad school.
