North Central College - Naperville, IL
Computer Science and Physics double major

Even before his freshman year, Kyle knew he wanted to study computer science. But once he arrived and took other science courses, he added a second major in physics.

Kyle has conducted research about knot theory with a math professor and presented his findings at the College’s Rall Symposium for Undergraduate Research.

“There are a lot opportunities at North Central. My time here has been fantastic, and I’ve gotten to know a lot of great people.” A commuter student, Kyle says the commuter activities “are great. I still feel extremely involved and not detached from what’s going on.”

Joining several other students, Kyle is looking to start a computer science club on campus. “We want to create open source software,” he says, adding that the club has a long-range goal of developing and selling a game with proceeds going to charity.
