Major: BS Software Engineering

Year: Sophomore

Hometown: Dana Point, California

I chose this major because... I love working with integrating hardware and software, and Software Engineering was the perfect field to do this.

Favorite Course(s): CS 164, CS 172, CI 102/103

Clubs/Extracurricular Activities: Club Water Polo

Co-ops I've done:

  • None yet (1st co-op Spring 2020)

Favorite thing/place at Drexel: Ross Commons to play pool.

When I'm not at Drexel, I'm... Exploring Philly, rowing, or biking

When you are in Philadelphia, I think you should... Explore Center City, especially historic Philadelphia.

Advice to new/incoming CCI students: Time management is crucial. You have no idea how fast the quarter system goes, and the better you manage your time, the easier it will be to manage the incredibly fast pace of the quarter system.

What is your dream job? I want to be on the landing team for SpaceX

Favorite Animated Character: Mickey Mouse


Hello! My name is Garrett Crayton. I’m a second-year student at Drexel University’s College of Computing and Informatics (CCI) studying software engineering from Southern California. I have worked with many programming languages (Python, Java, HTML, VBA just to name a few), but my favorite language is Java. I like working in the area where hardware and software meet, specifically with controlling machines (think Arduinos). If you have any questions regarding anything about Drexel, feel free to reach out. Can’t wait to hear from you!
