Cassandra is a senior in animal science from Glasgow and is a member of Alpha Zeta and Circle K.
chose to attend MSU's College of Agriculture because it is one of the
best schools in Montana. I also had a tuition waiver for any in-state
college. MSU's pre-vet program is a great preparation for vet school.
received the Harry Cockrum Memorial Scholarship, the Frank R. Beckley
Scholarship, the Thomas D. Campbell Memorial Scholarship, and the
Christy Foundation Grant. These scholarships have eased my stress about
my financial situation and allowed me to focus more on my studies.
Focusing more has allowed me to receive the grades I have and prepare me
for my future, hopefully as a rural Montana veterinarian.
being an MSU Ag student means being treated by the staff as an
individual and not just a number. It also means having the preparation
to be able to return to a rural area in Montana and be an important
member of the agricultural community.
My most cherished memory
while attending MSU is any home football game and all the memories with
my friends throughout the years. My favorite MSU tradition? Cat/Griz
The advice I'd give a first-year College of Ag student is,
"Don't sweat the small stuff." The professors really aren't scary and
most do want to help. Go to their office hours and get help if you need
it and establish a good student-professor relationship. It will become
very helpful in the future.
I'm looking forward to graduation and
hopefully attending veterinary school next fall. I plan to continue on
with my education at veterinary school.
My generation cares about
agriculture because we are the ones that have to deal with the growing
population of the people in the world. We need agriculture and the
knowledge to be able to grow food or raise food producing animals to
feed the world.
