Meet Some Friends Scholars

Mathematics–Computer Science Major

Colleen Muldowney, from Newfield, New York, is interested in building, fixing, and programming computers as well as designing websites. She also enjoys video games, art, animals, and working on cars with her father. Eventually she hopes to either own a computer business in Ithaca or find a job programming computer software or video games.

"The Friends scholarship means a lot to me, especially this year. My family, like a lot of families, is having a hard time due to the poor economy. Receiving this scholarship means fewer loans I have to take out, and to me, that equals more time I can spend in school. I want to double major in computer science and mathematics separately, but doing so requires I stay another year at Ithaca College. Receiving the Friends scholarship helped me decide to earn the double major."
