Bergen Community College student Evan Miller is studying computer science for a career as a software developer. Miller is a student in the Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) program.
“I chose Bergen Community College because I wanted to obtain a better education and better opportunities than where I come from,” said Miller who is originally from Passaic County. “I also chose Bergen to save money and to take my general education classes to pursue my goal of becoming a software developer.”
Miller is the vice president and co-founder of the chapter of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) at Bergen. He is a member of the STEM club and the computer technology club.
When reflecting on what has made him successful at Bergen, he credits the faculty, the EOF program, the professors instructing him, and the classes that he has taken. “With all of these resources, I have been able to become a better student and a better person,” said Miller. He expects to graduate in 2024.
