Lauren Hayden, C18

Major: Computer Science

Expected Graduation Year: 2023

Hi, my name is Lauren. The CWIT community is one of the main reasons that I chose UMBC. The members of CWIT are all supportive and living on the same floor as the CWIT first-year community has been great. Having friends that live on your floor from the beginning of the fall semester has been important for learning how to navigate college. I would not have as great of a support system if I were not in CWIT. I selected computer science as a major because I enjoy the logic and problem-solving skills mixed with math. I am working part-time as a research assistant in the Artificial Intelligence lab to identify layers of ice in the Antarctic. I have also discovered a new interest while at UMBC, ultimate frisbee.
