Jason Elliott, B.S. in Cybersecurity - Business Leadership & Management, 2022

“Honors College classes are much more focused on discussion and working with others to solve a problem. My experience was different from school: Instead of reading other peoples' data and writing a report on it, you're forming your own data and then reporting that.”
