    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

What it’s like being a Computer Science major?

I am in an interesting position where, like many students, I started off in computer science when I got to college. At first, I did not know what or why I was doing what I was doing when I took my first CS classes. I enjoyed the intro class (CS Principles – which I highly recommend) and found Java to be interesting in the Programming with Java I class. Of course, I started off with the traditional “Hello, World!”, printed onto the console display. Both of these classes were pretty packed because certain majors or concentrations require students to take them.

All CS classes are pretty much the same in terms of expectations. You learn the framework, apply your skills in assisgnments and projects, get tested, work in teams, present at the CIS Showcase at the end of the semester, and many other things. What makes CS interesting is that you take classes with students majoring in various subjects and different fields. This cognitive diversity enriches the classroom experience and makes class more interesting and fun.
