In Handong, no major is too easy, and IT is definitely on the side of more difficult ones. However, I really liked studying IT, the passion for computer science kept me going through the tough times. Professors were very welcoming when we were asking questions and participation was continually encouraged!
Among many good things that I have learnt from IT major, one thing remains with me on day-to-day basis, and it is the ability and desire to continually learn and try to get to the core of the issue! Handong educational system is very encouraging when it comes to self-education. A lot of students tend to perceive it as a major flaw, and are looking forward to professors explain everything so they can memorize it from the plate. I think that it was a great experience for me to figure out where and how to find information when I don't have a clue where to go from here. And it is one of the most important life skills I possess right now! It is even more important than the IT skills that I have learnt in school.
