Can you guess a Brandeis student’s major based on their computer stickers?

With a sea of open computers in a lecture hall, how are you going to compete and stand out against the other students? The answer lies in how you decorate your computer. Students often plaster their computers in any number of stickers but sometimes with nothing at all. Is there any connection between how students decorate their computers and what they are majoring in at Brandeis? Below, I invite you to look at student-submitted computers and guess what each computer owner is majoring in. Keep in mind, many students at Brandeis double major.
