We are two computer science classes from Sweden in our last year of school before university. For many of us this is the first time in the USA and we are really excited about it …

This Cisco Networking Academy (ASC and ITC as well) joined Cisco Networking Academy Program in 2000. Most of the students on this field trip are currently enrolled in either CCNA, ITE or IoE course. The professors aim to increase students’ exposures and understanding of Cisco’s technology to inspire them to further their study in networking and IT.
The Cisco Campus was taking care of us very well. All of us were invited and the arrangement was fantastic. We were divided into three groups to see different parts of campus. Afterwards we were invited to a nice lunch.
Thanks to everyone who has made this visit to the Cisco campus possible and so impressive.
