Info Security/network admin

By enduroktm300 ·
I checked the posts from back in 07, but didn't see anything more recent. I would love to get some advice about pursuing a career in info systems security and/or network administration.
I am currently enrolled in a BS program for Info Systems Sec but I need some real world experience while I am at it. Any pointers on good certs along these lines would be appreciated as well.
I had a brief "help desk" job with a terrible boss but a great mentor who actually made the place work and I absolutely fell in love with work. I know there are a lot of opinions about the value of degrees vs. certs, but I am going to get a degree either way. I have no problems with the added knowledge and value (or costs) of the certs. So I need help figuring out the "best" path to being usefully employed in IT while continuing my degree. I have no formal IT experience to place on a resume.
Please let the advice begin! Thanks in advance.
