The more you learn about the College of IST, the more you’ll realize there is no “typical” student. Our students have widely varying backgrounds and interests. Some didn’t take any technology classes in high school beyond keyboarding. Some studied Web design and programming, while others have taken courses to become certified in Microsoft Office and Cisco training. What unites College of IST students is a common interest in technology, math, problem solving, and working with other people. Beyond the classroom, our students are involved in various College of IST student organizations including WIST (Women in IST), D-Net (Diversity Network), Student Government, and the IST Special Living Option, to name a few.
