Deciding on GIS

It was an easy choice for me, I am a seasoned traveler and geography has always been something I’ve been good at as well as interested in. Considering I have a strong IT background, that made picking GIS the simplest of things.¬†

My EPPS Success

The key to my success at UT Dallas so far has been taking notes and paying attention in the classroom and hitting the books outside the classroom. Since I am getting a free education thanks to the VA (I am a GI Bill Recipient) I am taking my education very seriously.

Plans for the Future

Graduate from UT Dallas, find a job in the GIS field(hopefully in the DFW area), buy a house
