“ I went into the University of Michigan college of engineering undecided on my major, never having seen or tried coding before. The college of engineering requires all students to take an introductory programming course, which I unexpectedly found very intuitive and enjoyable. The open-ended problem solving and logical organization was fun to me, so I declared a computer science major just a few months later.” – Levi Winkle
