Welcome new students, and welcome back returning students! Here in the College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources the summer went by fast, and we have been looking forward to your return!
The 2015-2016 academic year brings in a brand new College Ambassador cohort. They are a fantastic and accomplished group of 21 undergraduates from across the College. Some have studied abroad in South Africa and Spain, conducted original research under IDEA and SURF, and interned in places like the Beardsley Zoo and even in Taiwan.
The College Ambassadors came back a few days early to go through an extensive two-day Orientation. They developed their skills as leaders through the Four Arrows ropes course, public speaking practice, and teamwork activities. The Ambassadors also traveled across campus to visit some of our academic departments. They saw our facilities in Gampel Pavilion, where Athletic Training and Exercise Science majors get hands-on experience in the labs and clinical settings. They visited the Plant Science Research Farm to see the experiments that faculty have going on in the fields. The Ambassadors also traveled to the Pathobiology and Veterinary Science department in Atwater to learn about Histology and see how students can get involved in the state diagnostic lab.
The Ambassadors are now ready to share all the exciting things they learned with current and prospective students and their families throughout the year. They are also excited to develop their skills as student leaders in the College and community. If this program interests you, keep a look out for our application in February!
