David Jarnagin
(2004)
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.

Being one of the first to complete FHSU's Information Assurance (IA) concentration required boldly going where no INT student had gone before. Successfully finishing my culminating project meant proving not only to my committee, but also to myself, that I had a holistic grasp of the IA subject matter as well as the willingness and ability to compensate for the types of SNAFUBARs commonly encountered in real world projects. Earning the MLS in IA was one of my most challenging, and most satisfying, academic experiences.
