being the third generation in my family to attend
WTAMU, and what led me to be a part of this campus
is the tradition of family.
Favorite WTAMU course you have taken so far
and why:
My favorite course I have taken at
WTAMU would have to be my AGRI 2300:
Professional Leadership Development class. In the
class, I was surrounded by other transfer students,
and well all created a bond in that class.
Favorite place on the WT campus and why: My
favorite place on campus would probably be the
third floor of the Agriculture Building. I enjoy going
up there to get my studying done and use the study
rooms when available.

Major: General Agriculture
College/university attended: Northeastern Junior
College
Hometown: Avondale, CO
Plans after graduation: To work on getting my
master's, then finding a successful job.

Starting over at a university can be
difficult, but if you're willing to get to know the
people around you, it can be surprising how much
you really have in common.
Campus involvement/organizations: I am
currently an Agriculture Ambassador for the
Department of Agricultural Sciences, I am in the
Collegiate FFA club, and love to go to as many
sporting events as I can. I also dabble in a little bit
of intramural sports competitions.
Favorite WTAMU tradition: My favorite tradition
that I was introduced to this year would probably
have to be the fight song since they play it at every
game, along with having the buffalo in front of the
field at the football games.
Favorite WTAMU course you have taken so far
and why:
I'd have to say my favorite WTAMU course
was the professional leadership and development
class. I was able to learn a lot of important skills,
meet people within the industry, as well as meet a
lot of other transfers who came in the same time I
did, ultimately introducing me to some of my
greatest friends!
Favorite place on the WT campus and why: The
buffalo stature fountain. It's honestly just a calming
kind of place, even when there are hundreds of
students walking by.
