Transferring to Radford University: Nicki Stinson
After completing her associate's degree, Nicki Stinson transferred to Radford University because of its great computer science program.
“I wanted to continue my education, and Radford made it easy for the transfer process,” Stinson said.
Upon her arrival, Stinson discovered that Radford offers many unique opportunities for her to connect with her industry, such as tech talks with local companies and competitions in data security. RU is host to the region’s International Collegiate Programming Contest event and offers membership in Upsilon Pi Epsilon, the international honor society for computing and information disciplines.
Stinson said she already feels equipped to tackle future ambitions as either a young professional in the technology sector or a graduate student.
“Radford has prepared me for this because they’ve allowed me to have the hands-on experience with my professor in the classroom,” she said. “I think I’m very prepared for industry or graduate school, whichever I choose.”
