A mixture of excitement and apprehension. Apprehension because I now find myself in a faraway state among people I’ve never met before in an environment I’ve never seen before. Excitement because this new environment and these new people offer a wide variety of resources and possibilities. I come from a university of mainly humanities majors and my computer science department is very small. Needless to say, my access to state-of-the art resources has been rather lacking. As interested as I am in artificial intelligence and virtual reality, I have never really been able to experience much of either first-hand, but I expect this summer to offer me the experiences for which I have been longing!
