Ohio State University Agribusiness Club visits University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences
UGA CAES hosted student members of the Ohio State University Agribusiness Club on Thursday, January 5, 2017, on the Athens, Georgia campus.
Each year, the OSU Agribusiness club visits different agricultural colleges to learn more about the school’s research and graduate programs in addition to their typical club meetings.
“We like to have small business owners in our community come to our club meetings and explain to us how they got started and how they got to where they are now,” said Garrett Leeds, club president and a junior in OSU’s College of Food, Agriculture, and Environmental Sciences.
Haylee Zwick, a junior Agribusiness and Applied Economics major at OSU, said, “The Club does a wonderful job of bringing in speakers of agribusiness companies that not only offer further educational enrichment, but it often leads to networking opportunities for internships as well!”
During the visit, Dr. Jean Bertrand, Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs, spoke with the group about the college’s graduate programs and Alexis Barnes and Hannah Rull, UGA CAES Ambassadors, led the club on a tour of campus including the recreational facilities and famous Sanford Stadium.
Haylee remarked that, after her visit, she is now interested in pursuing a graduate degree in Athens.
“I think my favorite part of visiting the University of Georgia was as we took our tour around the beautiful campus I started to realize that I could definitely see myself attending graduate school at UGA,” said Haylee. “I am excited to see what the future has in store for me and the possibility of going from a Buckeye to a Bulldog.”
