Dani Meyer knew Neumont University was the right college when she visited campus during Freshman Experience in 2015. The small classrooms and computer science focus put her at ease that transferring from the University of Wisconsin was the right choice for her career.
After taking Databases in her first year at Neumont, she was inspired to tackle the challenges of software development and declared her major in computer science. She says, "With databases, I want to find out the solutions of these problems, and I want to find a better way of doing things."
When it comes to finding solutions, Dani is willing to put in the work required. She manages to consistently make the Dean's List and stays busy on campus as a Resident Advisor and Student Ambassador. Roles in which she helps future and current students navigate life at Neumont. A life that can sometimes be difficult, especially for a woman looking to make it in an industry with a shortage of women working in the field. Dani says, "It's a fun thing to try and excel in your program and show that you can be an innovator just like anybody else."
