Mark Tank

Mark Tank is a mock Shark Tank in our business class here at UAT. Later in the class the teacher named the top three students she wanted to participate in the Mark Tank challenge and I was one of the students chosen. Obviously this was a fun learning opportunity so I took the opportunity and ran with it.

Being part of the UAT family

Posted on Dec 8, 2019 12:00:00 PM by Andrew Maddox in Student Life, in Student Ambassador, in UAT, in new students, in geek 411

Some things that might not be evident from an outside view are that at UAT if you are truly searching for a family you will find one. We all come from different walks of life and it can be intimidating. I personally come from a tech background but I am not 100% into all the exact same things as some of the primary demographic. For instance, I am not super well versed in popular culture which is something I have come to learn many students have knowledge about.

Why University of Advancing Technology (UAT)?

Posted on Dec 5, 2019 9:00:00 AM by Andrew Maddox in general education, in UAT Classes, in SyncFlex, in Synchronic Learning, in critical thinking

I wanted to write about the structure and importance of the specific classes that are required at UAT for the network security program as I am a network security student. The reason I believe this plays so much importance is the fact that university is not just an experience of learning only your core information, but also a time in life that shapes you as an individual for life. UAT takes a different approach to many classes that differs from most university's or colleges.

Posted on Oct 7, 2019 12:13:12 PM by Andrew Maddox in Network Security Degree, in cyber defense, in cyber attack, in cyber security degree, in cybersecurity

Many Network Security students and individuals in everyday life are concerned about identity protection and rightfully so. Trusted companies are breached every day and information is leaked. The legal aspect aside, it still happens and private information is still breached. This is one reason information should be monitored and watched over. Some of the resources for my identity protection I use are going to be listed below.

University of Advancing Technology President Jason Pistillo Interview

Posted on Jun 19, 2019 5:19:28 PM by Andrew Maddox in Advancing tech education, in technology leadership

Some can be nervous and intimidated while others are poised to learn and soak in the knowledge of great leaders. It was the latter that set me on a mission to meet with University of Advancing Technology President and CEO Jason Pistillo. First I had to figure out how to even contact the president of my university and how could I get an opportunity to soak in the knowledge and leadership skills straight from the source? I knew it had to be in person, not by email or by phone -- I also knew it was going to be a daunting task but I was determined to make it happen.

Do Your Memories Belong to You?

Posted on Mar 21, 2019 4:31:07 PM by Andrew Maddox in memory, in memories, in philosophy

Everyone has a memory that they have held on to. These memories can range from your favorite dog to childhood experiences that meant something to you. These things play a large part in how we make choices, solve problems and interact with people, whether we are aware of it or not. Things like your siblings bothering you about a specific action can sometimes be something that you will notice for your entire life. The real meat of the idea begs the question: Are those memories real? Do they belong to you? How and why do we remember them?
