I fell in love with the beautiful campus and friendly, multicultural atmosphere of the university dormitories. It was plain to see how much experience with animals we would receive just by exploring the campus, let alone all the other farms that the university collaborates with. I graduated with no regrets and would highly recommend it to anyone with a sense of adventure and determination.”
