Lyman, 21, maintained a 4.0 grade point average while attending Xavier. Lyman is from Englewood, Colo., just outside of Denver and returned to the area to work as a software engineer for IST.
“The professors were all wonderful,” she says. “They were always there to help, and not just academically. They took the time to know you as a person.”
Lyman says what she will miss most about Xavier is working in the computer lab with her friends, which she describes as challenging and fun. Lyman was also an officer of the computer science club and a member of the math club.
Both of Lyman’s parents are Xavier University alumni, but she says she wasn’t pressured to attend their alma mater.
“I was looking for a small school,” Lyman says. “We visited Xavier while we were in Cincinnati visiting relatives. I thought the campus was just beautiful and the people were friendly.”
