How Ryan Truax got involved with U.S. Geological Survey
I was searching for summer internship opprotunities and came across the SCEP program.
 
Experience
Hmm. I suppose there was that time the bridge tried to eat me or when some hooligan threw my tape measure into the river never to be found again, but mostly just enjoying South Dakota's country side.
 
Ryan Truax's accomplishments
The project I'm working with at the moment gives me a lot of freedoms in terms of when or where I'll go, how long I'll work, where I'll stay, etc. I've never quite had a task like this.
 
Ryan Truax's next steps
I am enjoying my work with the USGS and would like to keep working with them throughout graduate school, but I'll see where life takes me.
