On October 7, the School of Information Technology Registered Student Organizations hosted a virtual internship fair with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for summer 2022 recruitment opportunities. Due to COVID restrictions, the FBI (along with many other organizations) was unable to attend the in-person internship fair.
