Rob Tallon wasn't a college guy. He thought he had learned all he needed to know as a Navy Machinist 1st Class, working in the engine room of nuclear submarines.


When he got out after 20 years, Rob took a job as an engineer at an electrical power plant.

But his knees started to ache from climbing on the big machines. He decided to get some computer skills so he could work for the plant's cybersecurity team.

"Originally I was thinking about an online program. Fortunately, my case manager at the VA talked me into a bricks-and-mortar university, and I'm glad she did," Rob said.

Now he has one more semester at RMU before he earns his bachelor's degree in information systems. Then he's looking at the university's master of science in information security and assurance.

"I've looked at some other schools around the area, and the master's program I want is available at RMU and not too many others," he said.

Guess Rob got the college bug after all.

You'll be surprised at what you can learn here too.
