Why did you chose UMBC?
I chose UMBC because of their fantastic computer science program. I’ve had a very large interest in computers since I was young so it was a very big draw for me.

What would you say to a prospective student?

CMSC 441: Algorithms by Professor Chris Marron. I found the topic extremely interesting and professor Marron makes the class very approachable for all students.
