Although he started out as a double major in physics and math, Max Eve '13 - now of Burlington, Mass. - decided to stay a fifth year at MCLA to complete a minor in computer science. That extra time paid off as his team recently won a Hackathon sponsored by MIT and Boston Children's Hospital.
"I really have to give kudos to the computer science department. All my professors at MCLA were great. They went above and beyond, and put in tons of hours to help me out in so many different ways. This included a number of professors who sat down with me, went over my resume, listened to my presentations and guided me through the job search."
