Three good things about being a UH ICS student

1. The ICS course material being taught are essential to learn. Ranging from concepts, algorithms, programming, and web development are career-oriented experiences.

2. The ICS community and environment is very friendly and resourceful. Professors and TAs are willing to provide help when needed. Clubs are open to all that are resourceful such as learning, connections, and preparation. Lastly, Gerald Lau is a great advisor who provides plentiful information and resources.

3. ICS courses help students to build a professional persona that will be seen in real world application. Having an early start will enforce students to be a bit more prepared for a professional career.

1. There are many different computer science focused groups that as a UH ICS student, would help give me experience in a different aspects.
2. There are classes that requires us to collaborate and in turn, teaches us to learn to work together properly and efficiently.
3. Many upperclassman and teachers are willing to help us if we need it.

1. Have many opportunities to get a job
2. Experience and prepare for professional subjects in advance
3. Improve skills on group projects by collaborating with other students

1. UH provides many job or internship opportunities through career fairs, and other events.
2. The different ICS clubs that expose you to different parts of the industry (e.g. the Manoa Data Science club gave a overview of what a data scientist is and what they do).
3. Networking opportunities through fellow students, professors, and other professionals attending mixers, seminars, or presentations.

1. The ICS space in POST.

2. The chance to build a professional portfolio in ICS 314.

3. The abundance of online classes offered by the UH system.

1. Not necessarily ICS related, but the UH gym is amazing
2. Small, familiar community that helps you with networking
3. Gerald Lau.

a) Free access to the decent lab computers.

b) Collaborative learning environments.

Three good things that the UH ICS program provides for students are:

1. There's a lot of help available if you need it with office hours, TAs, and ICS space.

2. In most classes we are encouraged to network and work together with others to build our skills

3. All of the professors are well grounded in the subjects that they teach

Three good things about being a UH ICS student:

1.  I get to take classes and learn about things I'm interested in.

2.  There are quite a few opportunities for jobs at the University where we can use the skills we learn.

3.  We are in a field with good job prospects. 

The absolute best thing about being an ICS student, is creating a program that not only works, but has no errors.  Knowing that you gave birth to these sets of letters, symbols, and numbers that actually provide a useful function is euphoric.  Another benefit to being in the UH ICS program are the opportunities to start your new career.  Not only is the education provided, but the job postings, career prep and networking exposure is an added benefit.  Finally, the ability to satisfy certain course requirements from a variety of campuses throughout the islands is a great advantage for someone that appreciates options.

Three positive aspects of the UH ICS program:

1. So far, all software has either been open-source or a free license has been provided.

2. Courses are career-oriented.

3. Approachable and accessible professors.

1. Learning from experienced staff members

2. Joining ACM and the special interest groups

3. Planning forward for the professional field with variety of classes, activities and tools, such as RadGrad
