The student handbook for the ETC students who entered in the program in August of 2021.
I grew up and was educated in Kentucky. I have always been very talented in mathematics, in college I increased the bounds of my abilities and discovered how much I enjoyed solving problems. However, I never found myself to be directed toward any field in mathematics. Then I took my first course in computer science and found my identity. Computer science gave math new function, additional meaning, exponentially larger rewards, and I finally had an area where I could be creative the video game industry. All my life I had enjoyed virtual worlds, I couldn't have imagined how rewarding it is to be creating them.
