Adam Gordon, Majoring in computer science at Bowdoin
Computer science at Bowdoin is appropriately rigorous. Anyone planning to major in computer science should expect to be thoroughly challenged. The professors in the department are extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and there is an abundance of TA's, so the help is there when you need it. CS 101 is not representative of how difficult the other courses in the department are. Data Structures (the subsequent course) is significantly more difficult, but if computer science is something you're interested in, then you'll really enjoy it. It's an amazing class.
The computer science classes at Bowdoin are hard, but not too hard, and you'll be surprised how much you learn.
