I, like most minority groups, had very little choice when it came to school. I didn't appreciate the demeaning nature of college and the "rat race" of 4-7 years of pointless drabble...so I opted for something technical. Being Native American and of little means I chose HTI to attend. With assistace from my tribe, I attended HTI with NO knowledge of I.T. But when I arrived and attended, I gained so much from the knowledgable faculty. I studied hard and thumbed though every article/footnote in my books, I sat at the computer lab until closing and graduated in the top half of my class! Even though I had no computer, no laptop, no tools, no idea, and no tutilage. The hands on, direct approach I acheved greatness. I now have been empoyed for 5 years with our tribe and have recently aquired a business license to privately support my tribe though my own I.T. company! Take my word, these guys know what they are doing without all the BS. Stick with it, STUDY, and don't listen to these whiners..
