After graduating from Walter Payton College Prep High School, Paul Moreno enrolled in Harold Washington College as a Chicago Star Scholar, allowing him to earn his associate degree at no cost. He also received a transfer scholarship from CME Group that will provide financial support for his next two years at UIC.
When asked about what made his HWC experience so positive, Paul cited the Transfer Center, his professors, and the access he had to faculty and staff. He’s currently searching for a summer internship in computer science, which he’ll major in when he starts UIC in the fall. Paul’s long term goals include securing work in software development at a large company like Google or Facebook.
