In terms of your hashtags, computer will will make life easier in college as most of the course content is online, including submitting assignments. It's also a lot easier to do your assignments on a computer (such as writing papers) vs doing it by hand. The downside is that you could have viruses and malware or power outage which could limit your access to course content or your ability to do work and submit it on time.

Computer science is one of the top fields to be today as we live in a digital age where computers are a necessity of life and just about everything is done with computers. so in terms of employment, CS is a great field to be in . The down side to that may be that CS is not for everyone, one has to have a certain mind set to succeed in it.
