Really Great Security Program
What sold me on the Cyber Operations program at DSU was how it is good enough for students to be hired on with government organizations such as the NSA and other high level private organizations like Google.M

A personal goal
I like the size of the school and the staff that has taken the needs of the student as a personal goal. The school has turned out some of the finest teachers in the midwest and this personal goal between student and teacher has continued.
