Hi, my name is Jon Butts. I'm from Rochester, NY. I'm a third year student majoring in Mechanical Engineering Technology. In high school, I decided that I was looking for a hands-on approach to learning in a college education. I knew I was a hands-on learner because I spent a lot of time working on science laboratories for physics, chemistry, and earth science. I also worked a lot with machines such as the band saw, drill press, and lathe in the technology classrooms.
