What do you like about the UD College of Agriculture and Natural Resources?

I love how friendly the professors are here. They're always open to talking to students who are interested in their research, and they do a good job in getting to know the students within CANR.

What is your most memorable AG or UD experience?

Ag Day is definitely my most memorable experience because I attended it before I was a student here, and I met a lot of people in Entomology Club and The Wildlife Society, which showed me that I'd definitely fit right in at UD and the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

What are your career goals?

I hope to one day be both an educator and a researcher, particularly with birds. I also hope to use my writing in some way to connect people and nature.

What is an interesting or unusual fact about you?

I was once bitten by a penguin.

What is your favorite book, movie or song?
