Southwest Stories: MacKenzie Kallevig

From Palm Harbor, Florida to Marshall, Minnesota. MacKenzie Kallevig, a junior majoring in Computer Science, shares how she discovered SMSU and how the sport of swimming has taught her how to be a leader in the pool and in the classroom.

Kallevig developed her passion for computer science through video games at a young age. She used video games as a form of entertainment, stress relief and a creative outlet. Eventually she became curious to how the games were programmed and coded.

Now, she hopes to parlay a childhood passion and an undergraduate degree into a Master of Science (MS) in Cybersecurity from SMSU. The newly launched 30-credit Cybersecurity curriculum was was approved by the Higher Learning Commission in the fall of 2021. The program covers everything from writing high-quality secure software, to integrating security into corporate information systems.
