BSc Computer Science | 2017
Nationality: Albanian

My professors (and the Computer Science major in general) have always been friendly but professional, funny but wise, and extremely talented. All campus activities organized by students are the core of our life on campus. I have organized, participated, and competed, in multiple and diverse events. Each of them expanded my point of view, my ideology, my knowledge, and my experience. And last, but certainly not least, the alumni. They are the ultimate post-Jacobs experience, and I am very proud to be one of them.
