Come for the sun, stay for the education! ITT Technical Institute in Tampa, Florida, like its dozens of other campuses across the nation, offers career-specific associate’s and bachelor’s degrees in such important fields as drafting technology, information systems and nursing. In fact, students can access about a dozen programs of study here, in any of five of ITT Tech’s major colleges (all except Criminal Justice.) ITT Tech provides career-placement assistance and has implemented a tuition freeze policy as of December 2014; new students are guaranteed to not have their tuition rise for the duration of their enrollment. ITT Tech graduate Seamus Ware attests, “Getting an education was the only thing I knew that would get me to the next level. I was able to find a role [as a project manager] within one of the world’s largest IT companies before graduation.” So head southeast, to ITT Tech, where there’s so much more to do with your life than just get a tan!
