Where Can GIS Take You?
Have you been wondering what you can do after working for GIS? Look no further than recent graduate Nikita Panday!
Nikita is an international student from Nepal who majored in Business Management with a minor in Visual Arts. She came to work for the lab in her Junior year at the College as a marketing agent.
