Bucknell Networking Group Praises Summer Workers from SUN Tech

Bucknell University Network Analyst Stephanie Farnsworth has some great things to say about the summer workers from SUN Area Technical Institute’s she had the pleasure of supervising last summer.  We’ve provided the text of Ms. Farnsworth’s letter of support, and you can view the original document here.

Dear Mr. Hain:


As the student supervisor for the Networking department at Bucknell University, I have hired many students over the past eight years. It wasn’t until recently that I had the good fortune to acquire three student employees who had just completed your Computer Networking course. These students proved to be three of the best students we’ve ever hired. They had hands on knowledge of the equipment, they understood the technology, they were interested in learning and highly motivated. We will continue to employ them over breaks throughout their college career and will definitely come to SUN Area Technical Institute in the future when the current group graduates and we are in need of new student employees.


We always need more students of the caliber provided to us by your program and as such, Bucknell University’s Networking group fully supports your efforts to keep up with the changing technology and keep the curriculum current. In the past, we have really struggled to find student employees that had the skills necessary to work with in our department; it is a tremendous relief knowing that we can hire more SUN Tech students in the future.
