Astronomy at Florida Tech
Posted by Astronomical Chick on Monday, November 18, 2013 6:21 PM

Is anyone here going Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne Florida? My husband has been offered a job in Melbourne, and I am super excited because it is only 40 minutes from Kennedy Space Center, and only about 7 minutes away from this school. This is great news for me because not only is Florida where I'm from, so I get to go back home, but it could finally be the start to my carreer. I am 22 and haven't even begun reaching my dream of Astronomy because where I live, there are NO schools that have Astronomy courses. Is there anyone here that is a part of that school in anyway? It would be great to get connected!
