Year at UW: Third

About me: Hi there! I'm Zach, I'm currently a third year student finishing up my application to the Informatics program with the intent of following the HCI (Human Computer Interaction) track. It took me a longer time than it takes most people to decide on what I wanted to study, mostly because I came into college having no idea what I wanted to do. I ended up sampling from a large array of classes and programs and as a result I think I have a pretty fair idea of a broad chunk of the options on campus. I'm also super passionate about music and the outdoors; I love going on hikes in the summer and skiing in the winter. If you're curious about living situations or employment in the area, I lived in the student dorms, a house just north of campus and now an apartment and I have also been working for various restaurants across Seattle. I enjoy helping newcomers as they figure out university life and try to pick what they want to spend the next 4-5 years of their life on so if you have questions or want to get in touch somehow, send me an email and I'd be happy to get back to you. Hopefully, I'll talk to you soon!
