Having a group of people that can build off of one another, knowing you have an alliance, that your struggle is a shared experience and you’re not alone, is important for success.

Lucas D’Antonio, a fourth-year Computer Information Technology major with a concentration in Cybersecurity in the College of Technology, interned at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Illinois.

It was a class in Linux system administration that helped me the most...I was assigned a real-world problem and I applied my education and experience to solve it.

All of the hands-on training I’m receiving at PNW is helping me narrow down exactly what I want to do once I graduate.

The classes are small, personal and hands-on, you’re able to build connections with your classmates and professors. If you have questions you can actually talk to the professors.

I wanted to go to a smaller school because professors will actually know who I am. I will be David, the guy who sits on the right, not just one person in a class of 250.
