    "College of DuPage's Library and Information Technology program offers a degree that was beneficial to my career in public libraries and gave me hands-on experience in areas that I hadn't worked, for example the children's department. Completing the practicum at a local library also provided an opportunity to work in several different departments and learn from experienced professionals. It's been a good networking opportunity and I've made some excellent lifetime connections."

    "From my perspective, COD has a wealth of certificate and degree programs, like the Library and Information Technology program, that meet the educational aspirations of a large cross-section of students. It is a valued educational partner of high schools, such as Community High School, and provides many students with an affordable path to higher education. I think it's a true community treasure."

    "COD is also just a really great community and I'm thoroughly enjoying college life. I feel like it's easier to connect with people here through the various clubs and activities than it was in high school."
