Johnny Argentine - ITSCM

I am majoring in both IT and marketing with an emphasis in digital marketing. My favorite things to do outside of class are keeping in touch with my friends who are attending other colleges, expanding my culinary knowledge, and finding new games or movies to put time into. Since I am going to be a senior this year, I would like to line up a job for after graduation, so I will be seeking an internship for IT specifically this upcoming spring and hope to transition with that company over the summer.
