In twelve short weeks I am going to be graduating from college with a degree in Computer Networking with a focus in Computer Security. Over the past three and a half years, I have studied security in class, become involved in security-related extra-curriculars and in the industry, interned for a combined full year of full-time work at three different companies, and developed countless personal projects. Now that my time in college is almost over, I want to reflect on some of the things I've learned as a student of Computer Security with the hope that some incoming security students can learn from my experiences. If you are currently in the industry or have any other advice, feel free to leave a comment and start a discussion.
