Something I love about Laurentian is the community existing on campus. Through the various groups and clubs, any student can feel at home. My time here continues to surprise me. I have learned that as long as you allow them to, the skills you learn here have the power to shape your future. The Computer Science program has presented me with the opportunity to work as a web developer for Laurentian and its partners, therefore, allowing me to gain experience in my desired field.

Apart from this unique experience, one of the most enjoyable things about Computer Science are my colleagues and faculty. My Computer Science professors and classmates helped shape the person I am today.  

I would recommend Laurentian to anyone who is interested in smaller class sizes as well as the flexibility to follow their passions.
