What advice would you give to someone considering your major/industry/area of expertise?

Computer Science is such a large and rapidly evolving field, you need to consider your long-term goals. Do you want to work in research, software development, or a specific industry? Tailor your coursework, projects, and internships accordingly. If you're still figuring out what you want to do long term, start exploring your interests early and don't be afraid to reach out to people to ask about their experiences.
