Why I chose my major

I want to be able to take care of myself and those around me. Nutrition covers so many aspects of our lives from health to culture and I wanted to learn more about how the food we eat supports us. Everything from how the food we eat is made/grown to food safety to biochemistry, it all plays a part in our health. I have gained knowledge that I know will be valuable to my well-being.

What I like most about FACS

I really enjoyed the professors in FACS! They were always ready to help, and they had a passion for what they teach.

Post-graduation plans

I will be traveling and begin job searching.
