College Success Story from the Education Office

RinaldoCompleting my Bachelors of Science in Information Systems Security with a Minor in Management was a tremendous victory and accomplishment for both my professional and personal life. As a 21 year career Marine in the communications field, I have learned the importance of continuous education. Earning my degree has aided me in possessing the knowledge necessary to stay abreast of the intricacies involved in securing information. For example, I am now more equipped to analyze how communication infrastructures work, look for weaknesses that could be exploited, and report them so they may be corrected. Additionally, with the number of papers that were necessary to complete my degree, I have been able to clearly articulate those concerns to my superiors both orally and in writing. As a father, this degree really helped me to set an example to my children on patience, and determination to complete a goal. In the long term, I intend on using my degree for one of two paths; either to aid in beginning a new career post-retirement or to continue to enable secure information transfer for the Marine Corps, leading to a more efficient force in readiness.
