Mason is a transfer student and commuting from Rockford, Ill. He previously attended Rock Valley before transferring to NIU. Double majoring in Psychology and Computer Science, Mason anticipates graduating in Fall 2018. He hopes upon graduation to continue his education by pursuing his Master’s or Ph.D. in Germany after gaining experience in the professional working environment. Mason chose to attend NIU for the university’s close ties with employers and for its rigorous and hands-on Computer Science program.
Mason’s recent attendance to the Internship Fair by Career Services led him to the opportunity to intern at Discover. From his experience at his interview, he encourages his fellow students to be themselves and be confident of the knowledge learned from classes at your institution. During his free time, Mason enjoys playing video games and watching “The Magicians” and “The Expanse.”
