Favorite Tampa class/professor...

My favorite class I have taken has been CRM200 Law Enforcement with Dr. Paez. He has great lectures and talks about his experience in his life which gives great perspective for those interested in this career field.

I chose Tampa because...

The environment is perfect for what I wanted: access to the beach, downtown Tampa, and also the more suburban areas. Tampa also has a great criminology 4+1 program for me to advance to my masters more efficiently.

A few of my life goals are...

After getting my bachelors degree at the University of Tampa I would like to continue to stay here for my masters. After that my goal is to join some government agency such as the FBI or DEA and hopefully live on the beach somewhere.
