Biography: Hello, my name is David Ruvinskiy, and I am going to be a junior at UIUC. My passion for iOS app development led me to apply for the B.S. Information Sciences program, and I look forward to seeing how the concepts I learn as an information scientist apply to my role as an iOS developer.
Why Information Sciences: I want to major in Information Sciences because I believe the field strongly aligns with my interest in programming and written communication. During my two years at UIUC, I attempted to explore these interests through computer science and creative writing courses. However, I concluded that these majors were too narrow and that they would not provide me with the heuristic education I desired. Taking IS 101 this summer led to my realization that information sciences combines my interests through its focus on the relationship between people, technology, and society. Throughout IS 101 and other IS courses, I learned that the major would allow me to continue exploring my diverse interests.
