Ask A Current Undergraduate - Computer Science & Honors College

Hello! I represent UMass Amherst CICS (College of Information and Computer Sciences) and am happy to answer any questions people have about the university (preferably CS focused!).

I would like to keep this discussion focused around student life, culture, courses, and coop/internship. Not Financial Aid, living arrangements (although I do know a little), and college comparisons.

    @amsully I too have been admitted to CHC and CS.
    How do you find the course and workload? Plus, is it easy to maintain a 3.7+ GPA for the Bay State Fellowship Program?
    Also, how is the student life? Are you in a RAP in the CHC complex?
    Could you inform me more about the internship/co-op programs, as I have no idea about them?
