Spring Semester 2015 Preview

Between visiting friends and being with family, working on a handful of projects, and a quick trip to D.C., intersession was an enjoyable time. As fun as it was I am ready for the semester to start so I can get back to work. Looking East towards the Capitol from the Washington Monument

My first two days of classes went quite well and I am excited to get underway. This semester I am taking 6 classes: nearly all of them related to information security. I am eager to learn new skills and knowledge in my Unix Forensics and Network Services classes and jump into SCADA/ICS for a project for Symantec (and maybe an independent study class). Increasingly I'm seeing that my academics and side projects consistently overlap and I'm getting all of the miles out the RIT labs and resources afforded to me while I can. Work with Admissions and my involvement with Sigma Chi and Student Government will round out my schedule but all of it will contribute to a fulfilling semester. During spring semester I'll also be doing a bit of traveling. In March I plan on going down to the Bahamas for Spring Break vacation and in April I'll be in Washington, D.C. for meetings with Members of Congress and their staff to discuss issues relevant to Fraternity and Sorority Life and higher education as a whole. All and all my last spring term at RIT will be fun, busy, and surely very memorable.
