"Computer science is thinking, creating and inventing as well as conceptualizing, visualizing and communicating. Computer science bridges disciplinary boundaries, linking people and ideas together. Computer science is the extreme sport of academic pursuits, where you will encounter logic, philosophy, engineering, gaming, economics, art, aesthetics, law, ethics, social responsibility, and of course math and science."
