My Academic Path

I came into OSU as a fine arts major with a specialization in art and technology. My art advisor helped me plan out getting a minor in computer science and after my first programming class I fell in love with the field. My advisor was extremely helpful, and I was lucky enough that she was switched into the CSE advising office from the Art advising office at the same time that I transferred majors. At first it was really difficult and I felt a bit like an imposter in all my math and science classes due to switching in late. However, I befriended a lot of my classmates and developed a support system within the major that really encouraged me to keep at it. Developing good relations with your peers is extremely helpful for making the engineering classes less intimidating.
