Humans of GSU: Robert Rauh
“This summer my brother audited my digital forensics class with me and it surprised him that I wasn’t pursuing it. It was obvious that it was coming naturally to me, but it did not hold my interest.
I gravitate toward things that are a challenge.
I prefer cyber security, virtualization, and networking. I graduated from Prairie State College with an associate's in Science and had enough credits to be a math minor but that would have led to some form of Computer Science major, and I was looking for something else.
The pivotal point came when I met with my GSU advisor. After hearing what I was looking for, he suggested I choose to the Information Technology Program instead of Computer Science.
Game designers, web developers, and programmers follow the computer science path, but I am more interested in hardware and networking —more specifically the network accessibility, management, and security.
I know I could have succeeded in Computer Science, but I am happy to know I don’t have to write code. My path still isn’t clear, but it was like a veil was lifted when I found the Information Technology program at GSU.”
