"Professors at DePaul are really kind. Computer science is one of the most popular majors in my homeland and in the U.S., and I have a great interest in this area. The most charming part of computer science is when you are facing a hard code and you try your best to figure it out. After a lot of process and tests, finally it runs successfully. The joy of success is unparalleled.” ZEYU ZHANG FROM CHINA Studied GGP and progressed to MS Computer Science at DePaul University
