Hometown: Richmond
Major: Computer Science
Why I chose SCU: I heard great things about the Computer Science program at SCU, on top of that, the location of SCU made it perfect for my intended major. Furthermore, I connected with other Latinx students who are/were studying either Computer Science or any other Engineering careers at SCU, so they told me about the amazing connections you are able to build with professors and all the great resources offered to students who are first generation.
