Career fairs provide a great opportunity for networking and learning about internships and careers in agriculture.
Professors in CASNR are passionate about the success of their students and are willing to do whatever they can to help us succeed. Many of my professors will reply to emails with questions about assignments at any time of the day so that they can be sure to help us out before the assignment is due, which is something that really stands out to me.
One of my favorite memories so far is sitting next to Dean Waller at an Engler lecture. He gave me a hard time about the notes I took, and I would give him a hard time about not taking any notes. Then we'd talk about whether or not we got our paper written in time. After it was graded, we would pretend to compare grades on it.
I loved the atmosphere in CASNR when I first selected the college. I really enjoyed how laid back the campus was, how friendly everyone was, and how much it felt like a small town community.
The biggest way CASNR has prepared me for my career is through career services. Julie organizes two career fairs each year that provide a great opportunity for networking and learning about internships and careers in agriculture relating to my major. She has also helped me prepare my resume and cover letter.
The close relationships that are developed at CASNR are like none other. I have met so many friends and connected with so many different staff members all of whom are eager to see me succeed in whatever I do. The one-on-one advising offered through CASNR has really helped me to succeed. My advisor knows me, my interests, and my goals, and is always willing to lend a helping hand, write a letter of recommendation, and answer my questions. The staff in the Dean's office is phenomenal as well. They are wonderful support and make all of the "business" of going to college a smooth process. They are also very willing to listen to any concerns, comments, or suggestions about the college in order to constantly improve it.
The people in CASNR are great. I always tell prospective students who come on campus visits that they'll usually see someone they know while they're walking from place to place, and in the rare chance that they don't, there will still be someone who will smile or say hi. Our professors and university staff are the same way. It's a very friendly environment, it's calm and relaxed, and it's a great place to learn.
