"I spent six years active duty and two years in the Reserves as a 35N Signals Analyst. I served with 3rd BCT, 3rd Brigade, 101st Airborne Division Air Assault and completed two deployments. I am currently an electrical engineering student with a focus in electromagnetism and RF hardware technology. I chose Illinois because of their outstanding engineering program and my ability to use the Illinois Veteran Grant along with my Chapter 30 GI Bill education benefits. Since arriving, I have been extremely satisfied with the level of support the University has shown its veterans and my choice to attend Illinois."
