Busch Balances Musical Notes and Nuclear Notes
Nuclear Engineering sophomore Christopher Busch is not just at UT to pursue his passion for clean energy—he’s also here to make (sound) waves as a member of Pride of the Southland Marching Band with his mellophone (the marching band term for the French horn because of the way it’s held), which he has played for six years.
Originally from Spartanburg, South Carolina, once he landed on nuclear engineering as his major, UT jumped to the top of his list.
