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.

One of the great things about Purdue Northwest, other than the amazing professors, was the student community. The ability to work and network with students from different fields was advantageous on both an educational and a personal level.

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.
