What has been your favorite part of your degree program so far? My favorite part of my degree program is the other students who are in the program. Whether they’re my close friends or acquaintances I see often, I know that they are people who I share common interests with and can always count on.

What do you love about CAFNR? I love that CAFNR makes a huge campus feel smaller. As I walk around campus, I almost always see friends and familiar faces to say “hi” to as we pass by each other. Beyond that, there are always faculty and staff available and willing to help you be successful in CAFNR at Mizzou.

What advice do you have for incoming students? I would tell incoming students to take advantage of every opportunity that interests them at Mizzou and in CAFNR. Being involved will help you transition into college life at Mizzou, while make lasting friendships and memories. Academics are important but being involved can make your experience truly meaningful.
