I was already set on computer science. They said no football players don’t pick computer science. What are you doing? I feel every major is hard and I’d rather struggle that I have a true passion for. Nights staying up but at the same time, I’d rather be up struggling on a problem with computer programming than a typing a long essay.>>I think athletes that do well and graduate here so so well in the army and become such great officers because they manage their incredibly we will.>>I think cybercrime is a perfect fit for Hershey.>>– Herbie.>>I love it.
