(May 15, 2013) -- Meet Nathanael Holliday. He's one of UTSA's newest alums.

While an undergrad, the Air Force veteran was an avid student of American history.

But, outside the classroom, Holliday was better known for his skills in audio engineering and electronic music production. His unique musical repertoire includes blends such as "The Feast," "Space Mass," "Urban Birds," a cover of Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here…" and "Serendipity." The electronic mixes, which can be heard at the Sound Cloud and Reverbnation websites, are characterized by sounds of nature.

Through the UTSA Multidisciplinary Studies program, Holliday customized a degree plan to his unique strengths. The program allows undergrads to combine courses from three subject areas, provided one is offered through the College of Liberal and Fine Arts. Students take six courses in the first focus area and five courses in the subsequent disciplines. He pursued a customized degree program with concentrations in history, music and French.

Holliday now intends to pursue a law degree and a Ph.D. in history, endeavors which are no surprise to Kristi Meyer, whom he worked with in the UTSA Graduation Initiatives office.

"As an employee, Nathanael demonstrated a keen attention to detail, and he really took the time to think through tasks in order to cover all potential challenges and obstacles," said Meyer. "He applied this same kind of critical thinking and careful planning to his school work, which is why he was such a successful student. He is exactly the kind of student, and worker, who is making UTSA such a great place. "
