What is special about being a CAHNRS Coug?

Being a CAHNRS Coug means you will always have a system of support to guide you through your personal and academic challenges.

Favorite CAHNRS class?

My favorite class so far has been AS 166, Young Horse Handling. In this class you have the opportunity to work HANDS ON with your personal horse throughout the semester. It is so much fun!

Advice for underclassmen

The best advice I could give is to develop connections with your professors early on. Having a personal connection with your professors makes your academic experience so much more motivating. Also don’t be afraid to get involved in clubs and organizations, other people are in the exact same position as you. Make your experience here fun and unique!
