Elijah Wendel

Student Name: Elijah Wendel

Cohort: Fall 2018

Hometown: Emmaus, Pennsylvania

Major: Cybersecurity

I decided to join the computer science program at my high school because I’ve always been good with computers and enjoyed using them. I ended up loving the program and continued to take courses throughout the remainder of high school. So far at Stevens, I’ve participated in the Origami Club and C2GS, an organization dedicated to getting people together and playing board games. I chose to apply to Stevens knowing that the school had an excellent Co-op and Internship Program. Through the opportunities I’ll be given and the different work experiences, I’ll be able to decide what I’d like to do as a career. I am interested in minoring in math. Combined with cybersecurity, this could lead me to a job in the area of cryptography, which is something I’m interested in.
