"I decided to go for my degree in computer science because of my love for creating. I chose the bachelor's at North Seattle College because it's exciting to be in the first cohort and I already love the staff at North and the support they provide." 



DavidDavid (CS BS Student) 
"When I found out that North Seattle College was launching a new Computer Science program, this was a perfect opportunity for me since I was already a student at North. I also feel that because of COVID, I missed a lot of what North has to offer. Now that we are back in school for in-person classes, I am surrounded by intelligent, friendly classmates always willing to help each other out. Eric Lloyd is a great teacher, who is very eager to teach, share his knowledge and is always willing to help. I am very glad I joined this program and feel grateful about it."
