Why Illinois? – What factors helped contribute to your decision to attend the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign?
The USDA sponsored program “AgDiscovery” run by Dr. Dean Thompson in ACES helped introduce me to more agricultural related topics, majors, and career options that instantly caught my interest and the program itself helped me feel so comfortable and at home here.
Why NRES?- Specifically why did you choose to study Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences?
I love learning about the interactions and relationships between animals and their environments. I find it all so intriguing.
