"Shortly after I earned my associate's degree I started working in a hospital IT department—all thanks to the wonderful help of my externship coordinator. She helped me get through the interview process successfully. I have since earned my bachelor's degree and moved into a managerial position."
Charles Rickard, Bachelor of Science in Information Technology and Associate of Applied Science in Computer Forensics Graduate
Our beautiful grounds, classrooms, labs, and social areas create a distinctive campus environment. Newly renovated facilities show our emphasis on keeping current with changing times. A Fire Arms Training Simulation Lab, Learn Lab, and Learning Commons are just a few examples of our facilities.
