" I decided to enroll at UNL, because it was one of the only universities with this major. Since I grew up on a family farm in Nebraska, I wanted a major that integrated some agriculture classes into the degree, and I always have been interested in meteorology and climatology. So, applied climate science was the perfect fit, since the major description is how the climate impacts society as well as agricultural and natural resource systems."
"I took a few classes that emphasized the importance of the environment around us and brought to light many issues that I believe are important," James said. "So I decided I wanted a career that would allow me to use chemistry, biology and physics to help restore and maintain the health of the soil, water and air around us."
"One of my favorite classes is NRES 101: Natural Resources Orientation. It’s a great intro class because you get to explore a lot of the career avenues of the Fisheries and Wildlife major, and professors help you build a professional resume, which is very helpful. My other favorite class is Environmental Education (NRES 434). This class is all about learning to teach others about nature, and that’s what I want to do with the rest of my life."
"Both of my grandparents grew up in Nebraska, so naturally I was raised a Cornhusker. I grew in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Part way through high school, I knew that I wanted to go away from home for college, and from that moment on, my mind was set on UNL. It also helped that UNL does a great job at making school affordable to out of state students through scholarships, and other opportunities."
"My plans after graduation are to work in the hunting industry. I am currently involved in the Engler Agribusiness Entrepreneurship Program and have started my own hunting video production company called Whitetail Instinct. My goal is to continue to grow this business into my full-time career."
"Studying abroad was dream came true. When I finished high school, I got a scholarship to the United States, so I started searching for a school. University of Nebraska-Lincoln caught my attention because it has a high rating and my major was available there. Safety was one of my top considerations, and I found Lincoln is a safe place to be, so that makes me more confortable. Thus, I choose Nebraska without any hesitation, and I am very glad I made that choice because it has been beyond my expectation."
