Why did you decide to attend UW-Madison?
I was a student at a rival school- Minnesota Twin Cities and was not getting all I wanted out of it, so I looked into my options for a transfer, and the credits all worked out. Within a month of being here, things were solidified that I had without a doubt made the right decision as classes here were of a whole new caliber, and the professors I had were all extremely nice.

What has been your most memorable college experience?
My most memorable experience here was joining Alpha Gamma Rho and becoming a part of that truly great organization and group of guys.

What has been your favorite course?
Dairy Science 375: Reproductive physiology taught by Dr. Wiltbank was my favorite course because of how hands on the labs were and the variety of things we were able to do from artificial insemination, to ultrasound, and even embryo work. We were able to learn a wide variety of reproductive technologies and methods.

What are your future career goals?
I hope to attend vet school (at UW) and become a large animal veterinarian specializing in advanced reproductive technologies.
