"I chose Purdue because they were the first degree-awarding program in the country, and I knew it was right when I was able to make a community within days in my CS courses. Even though we all bonded due to suffering in CS180 together, we all made it through!
Though my years at Purdue, it wasn't easy, but I'm so glad I chose Purdue because of how it prepared me for the workforce. I learned how to manage a healthy work-life balance, grit, and determination!"
