Student Success Stories

 What some of our graduates have to say about working with us.

Rachel Mann, English Ph.D. ‘19

“My four years at the CDH provided me with indispensable opportunities that would have been difficult to find outside of the Center. In addition to collaborating with others on exciting, large-scale digital projects, my work at the CDH enabled me to develop and put into practice new technological skills, from TEI to text analytics, which have subsequently enhanced and shaped my own scholarship and research interests.”

George Clayton, CIS '18

 I truly think the CDH is a big reason why I was offered my position at TIAA. The work and coding experience offered at CDH was a huge help in me growing as a coder and definitely gave me a step up when entering the workforce.

Ming Wong, CS '18

Working as a programmer for the Center for Digital Humanities proves to be one of my best decisions. It was my first time to delve into full-stack web development through both the Republic of Literature and First Year English Projects. I had not only gained practical programming experience, but also improved my communication skills within a team environment. I am always thankful for CDH to provide me such a solid foundation to my software developer career.

Victor Reynolds, CS ‘17

“My experience at the Center for Digital Humanities afforded me a wide range of opportunities. I improved not only my software development skills, but also my communication and management skills. I was empowered to plan and implement projects such as Romantic Era Lyrics and the Carlyle Letters Online collaboratively with their respective directors. My input was valued much more than I think it would have been at any other software development position open to me at that time. Thanks to my time at the Center for Digital Humanities, I was well-prepared to begin my career as a software engineer in Silicon Valley.”

Julia Strout, CS ‘17

“Working at the CDH during my undergraduate degree gave me the hands on practical development skills that I found missing in a lot of my coursework while also introducing me to the research environment. I learned how to work with other developers, how to communicate with clients, and take ownership of and responsibility for my work. I consider it to be one of the most valuable experiences of my undergraduate career, and believe it was a large factor in helping me continue on to pursue a graduate degree in computer science.”

Richard Abercrombie, CS ‘15

“Working at the Center for Digital Humanities was an amazing experience. I was able to work with new technology and gain full-stack software development experience while creating real-world applications.  In addition to the technical skills learned while at CDH, I was also able to gain experience working directly with clients and planning projects from the ground up.  This gave me a valuable upper hand both when applying for jobs after graduating as well as beginning my career in software development.”

Jason Drain, CS ‘18

“The CDH facilitated my employment as a programmer working on a year-long project with the South Carolina Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology; a truly unique and valuable experience. I have always been fascinated by the intersection of the humanities and technology, and the CDH allowed me to experience this first hand while building my software development skills.”

Molly Carlson, CIS ‘18

“The Handheld Art and Lone Woman projects both assisted me greatly in my major of Computer Information Systems, a field that was still relatively intimidating. While Handheld Art first introduced me to reinventing websites to accommodate additional metadata, Lone Woman gave me the skills to work with Data Visualizations, and the tools to create them.”
