“I chose to study agribusiness because I am from a small, rural community where agriculture is the heart and soul. Agriculture is a part of who I am, and becoming an ag lender some day has always been my goal. UNK was my choice because of the size. The student-teacher ratio is perfect, and I have never felt completely lost on campus. The staff is outstanding, and if I ever need help I know I will always find an answer by asking any one of them.”
