David Jarnagin
Technology Consultant
Consolidated Graphics
Gainsville, FL

The INT department curriculum doesn't just give a student a depth of knowledge in one area like Web development, internetworking, or media studies; it also gives the student a breadth of knowledge in leadership, public policy, and entrepreneurship. These are valuable skills which were integral to obtaining my current position with Consolidated Graphics.
