AITP students bring home honorsPosted Apr. 6, 2012
There were 71 colleges and universities represented from as far away as Alaska and students from the Ashtabula Campus came home from a national conference with plenty of hardware.
The 2012 Association of Information Technology Professionals held its National Collegiate Conference in San Antonio recently. Members of the Kent State University at Ashtabula student chapter were among the 538 students attending and competing.

Students have the opportunity to compete in several different contests from network design to programming languages. Two teams of Ashtabula Campus students competed against 33 others in the Visual Studio.Net Developer Contest. Rita Hennigan and Stephanie Edge took home a trophy for second place. Jeremy Loveridge and Kyle Sowry brought home one for third.
AITP Advisor and Assistant Professor of Computer Technology Irene Edge said she was very proud of the students. "The results from this conference were the results of a lot of effort put forward by our students," Edge said.
