Army vet serves country, finds calling at UHCL

When Steve Eggleston first began attending college in California in 1999, he soon realized it wasn’t for him. Eggleston, a post-baccalaureate environmental science student at University of Houston-Clear Lake, had always wanted to join the military, so he dropped out and began speaking to an Army recruiter. But due to a medical condition, he had to apply for a medical waiver and was told it might take up to two years for the Army to process his request to join.
