“...network between both my professors and my peers”

“I greatly enjoyed living and learning at BVU. I had numerous opportunities and chances to network between both my professors and my peers. I traveled to Ireland for two weeks to study ancestry and to Utah to volunteer at the Best Friends Animal Society. Additionally, I had the opportunity to intern at Future Health Software in Carroll, Iowa, and with INTERPOL in Washington D.C. These opportunities helped not only to define me as a person, but provided me with the skills necessary to be accepted into ISU’s Information Assurance graduate program.”
