Sophomore and computer science major Coltin Kifer has long had an interest in programming and web development. At Seton Hill, Coltin is honing those skills in class and putting them to use right away through internships with Seton Hill’s IT Department.
After completing a work study job helping to solve technology-related issues through IT’s Help Desk, Coltin began a summer internship with IT writing code for a revamp of Seton Hill’s intranet, MySHU. He felt thrilled to be able to start coding right away, and after his internship ended he continued to work closely with IT on various projects. Being mentored by professionals has helped him learn new skills faster while also gaining experience with new programming and web development languages.
