CTAHR has prepared me well for the future. It has made me conscious of local, state, and federal problems and has also made me appreciate agriculture more, especially how important and encompassing it is.

I appreciate how diverse CTAHR is and how much of a tightly knit community it can be, despite how varied its departments are. CTAHR provided me with opportunities that I would not have had in any other college or university.

All I want to do is be a resource to those who need it, and I feel that I will be able to now and after I graduate. I could not have done it without the help of the CTAHR advisors and my professors.
