My journey to the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences began in sixth grade when I first went into an agriscience classroom. I had an agriculture teacher who saw potential in me and introduced me to the National FFA Organization, and this organization cultivated a passion for the agricultural industry within me.
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.
I am proud to be a part of CALS for so many reasons! First and foremost, you will never meet a better group of individuals who want you to succeed. Unlike other colleges, I feel CALS is so personable with every student. The dean's office, advisors, and professors make themselves available to contribute to the success of all students. Additionally, CALS is one of the best colleges in the country for my specific majors.
