Class of 2019

At Marywood, I earned a Bachelor’s degree in both Computer Science and Information Security, with a minor in Math. I am currently working as a web/software developer and a business analyst. The Computer Science program encouraged me to not only work hard but to also have a passion for the material. The small class sizes allows students to have an interactive experience, in part creating a eminent learning environment. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with my professors and fellow classmates at the university.
