I’m in the computer science program at Sheridan college in Oakville. Specifically, I study mobile computing. That means I develop apps for smartphones.

To me, the campus environment is great. The school is known for excellent programs and excellent sports (go Bruins). My program consists of a lot of code writing, collaborating with designers, and trial and error. Our instructors have built apps of their own, which you can download to your phones today. It is great having instructors who actually know what they are talking about.

I knew I wanted to attend Sheridan as soon as I got to the campus tour. The modern design and clean campus made me feel at home and inspired me to work harder on each and every assignment so far. Anyone looking for a great computer science program does not need to look any farther.

There's a weird narrative out there about Sheridan only caring about international students. I'm a domestic student and I finished my advanced diploma in marketing last year, which included the search marketing course. My profs were industry professionals who were extremely helpful and approachable. Most of them knew me by my first name.

I'm working at an agency in downtown Toronto right now and loving every second of it. I highly recommend the school and the program.
