    In an effort to recruit, retain, and release students in computer science at Fort Valley State University, a few computer science students and I decided to give an exciting presentation about “Changing the Face of Technology.” Approximately, 245 students participated in this forum as we shared with the freshmen orientation class why computer science needs them and why they should either major or minor in computer science. The students who presented were able to talk about their research and internship experiences.
