“I chose Ferrum because it felt like home. I had a dedicated group of people who genuinely wanted to see me succeed. I was given a lot of opportunities in and outside the classroom I may not have gotten if I went somewhere else,” said Jade, who wants to work as a researcher in a zoological facility after graduating in December 2018.
Assistant Professor of Animal Science Nancy Brubaker describes Jade as an enthusiastic and diligent student. “Jade focuses to not only acquire academic information but rises above because she strives to understand and apply her knowledge. She is a wonderful student,” said Dr. Brubaker.
