Computer science majors - where are they now?

  Dee Ann Rexroat  

“The breadth of ideas and people I was exposed to at Cornell helped me appreciate knowledge. It encouraged my curiosity and has taught me to listen to what others are interested in. One of the best compliments I ever got was when a person told me that he knew I had a liberal arts education after just a few minutes of chatting. He could just tell.”
