At St. Lawrence, Yuxi has been a QRC mentor, peer tutor and library assistant, and has served as a co-president of the Chinese Culture Club and an editor for the Laurentian Magazine. She also did a SLU fellowship one summer.
Her favorite experiences in the department have been solving the Problem of the Week and attending the Hudson River undergraduate math conference. Her advice to students is never be afraid to try new things. "At the end of my freshman year I became fascinated by computer science," she says. "I was hesitant to try because of lacking in confidence."
