Business - Computer Info Systems

Megan Hazelrigg

"I would match my education with what other students get at larger universities.  My teachers all have Ph.D.’s, Western has some of the best technology, and I like the community feeling. Western fits me like a glove.”

Megan Hazelrigg, Computer Information Systems Major

“I created a portfolio with projects I had done in my CIS classes and took it to local businesses. I got an internship, which led to my full-time job. I started as a database support specialist and in six months, I was promoted.”

Adam Faulkner ‘06, Web Development, Teamwork Solutions
