Computer Science is a pretty tight-knit group. Everyone is accepting of others, easy to get along with, and always willing to help. My time here at Laurentian has been quite the experience. University is incredibly different than high school, but the support from professors who truly care and the diverse group of friends I have, have made the transition all that much easier. Computer Science is for anyone looking to make a difference and for those who have a passion for technology. Laurentian was my top choice because it has smaller class sizes, great professors, and amazing opportunities with coop and study abroad.
