AN I.T. SUCCESS STORY




Lauren Kaaz - Class of 2011

Information Technology & Business Administration double-major
Now in IT Management with Lexeco in the KC area

 

"My advisor was able to get me through the program in two years while also getting a double major in business administration. Since the IT program is smaller, I was able to receive a lot of one-on-one attention from my instructor, especially during summer classes. It shows a lot when an instructor is willing to hold classes during the summer which are not normally offered so that I could graduate on time.

"At Saint Mary, we actually learned the material, not just went over it. I was able to actually retain the material that was taught."
