What attracted you to the UConn College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources?
I actually came into UConn my freshman year in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, as a biological sciences major. During my first semester I realized it wasn’t the right fit for me and started exploring other major possibilities. I took courses in a few different majors across colleges and found I really liked not only the courses offered in CAHNR, but also the college’s strong sense of community.
