Chiara MaaloufCPaMS Scholar

The CPaMS faculty are super supportive of our studies and of our growth here at Loyola. Not only do they engage with us in the classroom, but they are available outside the classroom to help us navigate our future career paths. When deciding which courses to pick for this current semester, Dr. Olsen was super helpful and provided insight on which courses would be most beneficial for me to take since I was deciding between math and computer science… If not for her help, I would not have the option to double major if I choose to.
