As college majors, STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) is strong. Some 80 students featured will major in a bioscience field; another 80 in an engineering discipline; three dozen in computer science. Other graduates are joining the U.S. military or … [Read more...] about Top graduates 2019: When their hard work meets the future
