Why I love Wisconsin CS:
Wisconsin CS gave me the computational-thinking structure that has served as a problem-solving foundation throughout my career. In addition to the intensive coursework, I benefited from the Wisconsin culture and the networking opportunities that were offered. I’ve been fortunate to see my son and my daughter graduate from the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
