Before my senior year of high school, I still had no idea where I wanted to go to college, or what I wanted to major in. I was interested in coding as a hobby, but had really never considered making it my career. At Code Longhorn, however, I had the chance to talk to students and professors who could tell me exactly what it was like to study computer science and make it into a career. Seeing these people and seeing the amazing UT Computer Science facilities really was the biggest factor in drawing me to this field, and I made friends that I still have today.
