Dear Old Rose

My 4 years at Rose-Hulman have come to an end. While saying good bye is always hard, it is also an exciting time. This fall my brother, Anthony, will begin at Rose and I will begin work on my Ph.D. at the University of Florida.

As you may know, this spring the Rose-Hulman family suffered a great loss. Matt Branam, the President of Rose-Hulman, passed suddenly on April 20th. As you might see from the picture above, the degrees were issued with Matt’s name. This is a great memorial to his life. In addition to all the degrees, all the seniors wore pins that said “Make it happen. Make it fun.”

In just under a week I head out to Microsoft in Redmond, Washington to work on Xbox this summer.  I will never forget my time at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and I look forward to coming back on homecoming!

So it has been a long time since I last posted. I have been busy traveling and working on projects for school. I am happy to share that one projedt is about done. My senior design project has evolved a bit. DaNI is now sporting a wireless access point and a distance sensor on the arm and a gripper open/close sensor.


Check out the image. I will have a video on Wednesday night! Oh and you can see it in person at NIWeek!
