Charles Stirens, B.S. in Business Information Technology

“RSU offered me opportunities I would not have had at other universities. Smaller class sizes and invested professors allowed me to connect with people who really know the subjects at hand. I was an intern through The Washington Center program where I got the type of knowledge you can only get from people who have succeeded in the real world and are willing to turn around and help those behind them do the same.”
