Congrats to all SCSU 2020 graduates! I hope you all the best in life and know you'll all move on to do amazing things.

Favorite Time at SCSU

My favorite part of my time at SCSU was being able to learn and grow as a programmer with the Computer Science Department. The CS Dept here is amazing and really dedicated to serving its students. I enjoyed each and every CSC class I ever attended - even the difficult ones - because they have all helped me develop into the person I am today.

What are you going to miss the most, and what are you looking forward to the most?

The one thing I'll miss the most from is ProCon. I've attended so many amazing ProCon-sponsored trips and on-campus events with my best friend. They were all truly memorable and hold a special place in my heart. The one thing I'm looking forward to the most is starting my career at Yale ITS as an Application Developer. I had an amazing time during my internship there in 2019, and I am happy to begin my career and life with the Yale ITS team.

Advice to Incoming Students

Always follow your dreams and never give up! Even when times are hard, classes are difficult, and you're feeling let down, always reach out for help and don't be afraid to fall down before getting back up. The journey is hard and difficult but 100% worth it.
