“I felt blindsided by how much I’d grown. I left with a newfound love for coding and the logic inherent to software engineering. I found I love leading a team. I also discovered that in the world of software, learning isn’t limited to a formal class setting or dynamic. Once you know how to utilize the internet, nothing obstructs your path to knowledge.”

Emma Wolff, Mount Holyoke College, Arabic Studies & CS

“Before last summer, if someone told me I’d graduate with an opportunity to work on machine learning and automation projects, I’d find it hard to believe. Now I can confidently say I’m leaving Davidson and Adjacent equipped to ethically apply my liberal arts foundation to the tech space, and with the knowledge to bring impactful ventures to life.”

Alex Idonije, Davidson College, Chinese Studies

“I’m pretty much mind blown at how cool this program is. I don’t think a lot of people come out of college with tech skills and therefore have to learn on the job, but having a solid foundation like this without compromising time during the semester is invaluable.”

Sophia Schwartsmann,  Scripps College, Art History Major
