Major: BS Computer Science 

Year: Sophomore

Hometown: Sayreville, NJ

I chose this major because... I believe this major has the most flexibility to expand on great ideas to share and benefit the entire world and I would like to contribute a part in that.

Favorite Course(s): CS171- Programming I – I learned how to use python for the first time as I used to code in other languages previously. Python is a very strong tool which I would like to invest more time into learning.

Clubs/Extracurricular Activities: Board member of Nepali Student Association, Intramural Soccer, Intramural Basketball, Beta Chi Theta Fraternity Inc., Drexel Blockchain, Drexel Table tennis

Co-ops I've done:

  • First co-op in Spring 2020

Favorite thing/place at Drexel: Buckley Field and chilling out at the Drexel Quad

When I'm not at Drexel, I'm... Exploring new places to eat at or at the beach

When you are in Philadelphia, I think you should... visit Cira Green, visit museums, and most definitely attend the free events that are everywhere in the city.

Advice to new/incoming CCI students: Learn to balance the time you have between school and social life to make the most of your first year, you only get to do it once and it goes by super fast.

Hey, my name is Rayan but pronounced (Ryan). I am currently a sophomore majoring in Computer Science. I really like to go out and explore new places to eat or watch sunrises at the beach. I really enjoy meeting new people and trying new things as I get older cause you don’t always get a chance to do some things!
