CALS has provided me with numerous opportunities and resources to grow and reach my goals. From providing the resources and space to be able to run my very own organization, the Culinary Arts Student Union, to providing connections that has led to my summer internship. The opportunities at CALS are endless.
I am proud to be in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences because it is literally the best college at UF. The faculty and advisors are very student centric. I walk the halls in my department building and I just about have to stop and talk to all the faculty. The students and faculty in my department have become my family.
When I was first accepted to the University of Florida, I wasn't sure what the difference was between CALS and CLAS (College of Liberal Arts and Sciences) so I just declared a major I was interested in. My major happened to be within the College of Ag. and Life Sciences and this was when I started getting emails and I realized how many opportunities were available to me. Since then, I haven't even thought of changing my major or the college I am in.
