DSU is one of the best schools in the nation for anyone majoring in any sort of computer science. We've got some of the best programs, , we supposedly have an amazing download rate of 90mb/s, and in my opinion, some of the best professors.

I explain to them that DSU has an excellent computer science/technology department of staff that are more than a lot of fun and have had quite a history of experience with what they are teaching.
