The Digital Design course I took at Cisco College incorporated real-world assignments including taking photographs in the historic Downtown Abilene as well as participating in Dr. Jane Goodall’s 20th anniversary of her Roots and Shoots campaign which was a once in lifetime experience. Attending Cisco College is a worthwhile investment for a promising future!
