My school's co-op program has provided me with work experience that is much more impressive than any other college grads I know. Right now, while you are looking at schools, you may think that a fifth year or spending some of your summer at school is weird, but trust me, I would not change anything in my program! Plus, being in North Carolina allows hands-on learning at museums, planetariums, and other cultural attractions.

Honestly, it is all about networking. We have a lot of involved alumni who want to see us grow. You have to reach out. It is not about what you know, but who you know some times. I haven't had any trouble. It could be better. The school doesn't have the best reputation, but that doesn't mean we can't make it better. Believe me when a Falcon is persistent and finally gets a job or internship we always do our thing!
