Kearsten Murray

Major: Master of Science in Computer Science, Class of 2012

Kearsten MurrayWhen Kearsten Murray wanted to return to school for a Master of Science in Computer Science, she chose her alma mater, Kutztown University. A graduate with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication Design, she wanted to "take up the more technical aspect" of her design work in order to pursue a career in software development.

"The community, faculty, and staff have prepared us to be good speakers, interacting in a business setting," she remarks, considering the ways in which KU has prepared her for her career.

Along with its strong educational reputation, KU appeals to Murray for its "great location" and size as well as the "good opportunity for a grad assistantship." KU offers many graduate students the opportunity to gain experience in their field working professionally for the university while also receiving discounted tuition.

"The people I encountered are friendly," she explains about the atmosphere of the school. She recalls walking through campus on a nice day in fall and spring as her favorite memories.
