CS 373 Fall 2020: Kyle Wang

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Katy, Texas, a suburb on the west side of Houston. Fun fact, Drake gave Katy a shoutout.

What highschool did you go to?

I went the James E. Taylor High School.

What are your expectations for this class?

Some of the expectations that I have for this class include getting a feel for how Software Engineering is like. I heard many great things about this class and about Professor Downing and my expectations are very high!

Why are you majoring in CS?

I am majoring in CS because I had always had an affinity for computers and technology. I started playing video games since I was young and took my first CS course in highschool. I really enjoyed the class and decided to pursue it in college.

How did you feel about cold calling?

Cold calling is both cool and scary! It is a good thing because it will keep everyone on edge wondering when it will be their turn and therefore will pay more attention in class. It will be scary in case when it is your turn, you mess up and say the wrong thing!

What’s your tip-of-the-week?

My tip of the week is to make sure to live a healthy and active lifestyle. This is important during today’s time because of all of our online classes. Our movement during the day will certainly go down because we will not have to go to class in person so it is our own duty to make sure we exercise enought o live a healthy life.
