The Northwest Experience

Jack chose Northwest because of its hometown feel and the opportunity to get involved in student organizations from his first day on campus.

His participation in profession-based groups, like the Cyber Defense Club, helped him highlight the knowledge he gained through coursework while building soft skills and enabling him to interact confidently with potential employers. After attending a Northwest Career Day as a freshman, Jack landed technology internship that eventually led to a full-time position after graduation.

He credits the ability to dive deep into all aspects of cybersecurity and computer science, as well as the support to develop professional skills and relationshipswith being career ready, day one.
