Why did you decide to study at IUPUI?
I decided to study at IUPUI because of the many scholarship opportunities that most universities didn’t have. IUPUI is extremely generous with amount of scholarships that they offer to their students. My counselor first recommended this school to me, and after seeing the extremely diverse community here, I decided that this was my second home because I felt extremely welcomed here.

What major are you and why did you choose your particular major?
I am a computer science major and I study at the Purdue School of Science. I chose this major because I took a few computer science classes back in high school and it was something that I really enjoyed doing. Thankfully, IUPUI was the perfect place to pursue this degree.

What is the best way to make friends on and off campus?
For me, the best way to make friends on and off campus is by getting involved in various clubs and events. When I first came here I was shy, but getting involved in organizations such as DesiJags really helped reinvent myself and become more outgoing.
