WEBVTT 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:04.000 Music. 00:00:04.000 --> 00:00:09.000 I chose to major in computer science at Western because I can talk to my professors whenever I need help. 00:00:09.000 --> 00:00:13.000 Plus, computer science is a great industry to be going into right now. 00:00:13.000 --> 00:00:20.000 Music. 00:00:20.000 --> 00:00:24.000 This term I'm taking my senior project for computer science. 00:00:24.000 --> 00:00:28.000 We meet regularly in class but most of the time we're working in our small groups of 4. 00:00:28.000 --> 00:00:32.000 And we're working to create a program called Adopt a Drain 00:00:32.000 --> 00:00:36.000 Which allows people in the Monmouth community to adopt storm drains. 00:00:36.000 --> 00:00:39.000 And keep them clean so we don't have our flooding issues. 00:00:39.000 --> 00:00:45.000 We meet once a week with our professor and he guides us in a way to make our project really spectacular. 00:00:45.000 --> 00:00:51.000 The best thing I've found about Western is that the faculty is really interested in you getting a job after college. 00:00:51.000 --> 00:00:58.000 They help us with our resumes, they help us find internships, and they really make sure that we have the skills that are going to be expected in industry. 00:00:58.000 --> 00:00:63.000 Another activity I've enjoyed at Western is being able to be involved in the theater. 00:01:03.000 --> 00:01:06.000 I've done everything from run sound, to make costumes, and build sets. 00:01:06.000 --> 00:01:09.000 They've really helped me round out my education. 00:01:09.000 --> 00:01:15.000 My career goals is to find a job where I can balance family life and work. 00:01:15.000 --> 00:01:22.000 Computer science is great for that because you can get a job working at home or working in industry in an actual building. 00:01:22.000 --> 00:01:25.000 And I can really just balance my life however I need. 00:01:25.000 --> 00:01:33.000 I would recommend other students attend Western because the faculty really pushed me to the best of my ability and showed me everything I'm capable of. 00:01:33.000 --> 00:01:36.000 Western Oregon University is exactly what I was looking for. 00:01:36.000 --> 00:01:44.000 Music.
