I got the internship at USAA! Thank you so much for everything you guys have done for me. You guys are truly amazing.

USAA has had tremendous success with the students we have recruited from the School for Information Technology and Computing (SITC) at ACU. Whether they are recruited for our IT intern program or as full time employees, we have found that the students have been academically well prepared and easily integrate into our corporate culture. In addition, the support we receive from the ACU Career Center, SITC faculty, and university administration makes the recruiting process at the school an efficient and positive experience for us and one that we hope to continue well into the future.
