Computing Student to Give Student Address at Commencement


Priscila Ontiveros Chucatiny, who will soon earn a bachelor's degree in computer science, said she changed her destiny by coming to the U.S. for her education.

At Grand Valley, Ontiveros found herself becoming more confident and extroverted. She was a student employee at Fresh Food Co., a tutor and worked for Facilities Planning for the past three years. "They really opened the welcome door for me. I really enjoyed working there," she said.

She switched her major from engineering to computer science after taking a foundation course and discovering "coding is where it's at."

Ontiveros will give the student address at the April 28 commencement ceremony. Her parents, uncle and aunt, and grandmother will travel from Bolivia to watch.

Congratulations, Priscila! The School of Computing is proud of you!
