Thomas Mascio: Sullivan Alum of the Month
Thomas Mascio was chosen as Alumnus of the month from Sullivan University's Ft. Knox campus. He said it was a surprise and honor to be selected. Thomas graduated with his degrees in Information Technology and System Support and Administration in 2013. He chose IT because he was interested in computers and wanted to learn something new after working as a mechanic and contractor in the Army for over 22 years.
His favorite thing about Sullivan was the people; "from the instructors that made the classes fun and challenging, to the staff that was helpful with any questions I had," he said. "The instructors having real world experience not only made sure I learned the material in the textbooks but also how it applied to the real world."
Thomas currently works for Cafepress.com as an IT Support Specialist. His position consists of dealing with computer hardware, customer service, and networking. His future goal is to go back to school to obtain more education in computer programming and web design. "I plan on looking into my options after my first year in my position, which I am currently focusing on," he said.
His advice for students is: "Hang in there throughout your schooling and strive to get your degree. As for graduates, be sure to use career services, as they can help you obtain a position in your field of study."
