Favorites & Whys
Why did you select Agribusiness Management as your major?
I picked Agribusiness Management as my major because I love agriculture. To be a successful ranch and farm owner you must have the business knowledge to make a profit.
You are the President of the Tarleton Economics Society. What are the goals of your organization and how can other students get involved?
One of my goals for my organization is to be recognized more around campus as a society that is for people interested in economics. Economics doesn’t have to be your major to join. The economy affects us all so I think it is important for students to take a interest in it. A way students can get involved is to come to one of our monthly meetings. In the spring semester we will start having meetings every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month at 12:30 in the Dean’s Conference in the Business Building, room 172. We have speakers from different businesses or organizations to talk to us. Please join us on OrgSync for more information.
What are your future career goals?
My career goals are to continue doing something in the agriculture field and to take over my families’ farms and ranch.
Favorite subject outside your major and why:
My favorite subject outside of my major would have to be Intermediate Macroeconomics with Mr. Tanter. I enjoy it because Mr. Tanter is such a good teacher and the class explains why the recession happened and how it could have been avoided.
Favorite on-campus place to study and why:
My favorite place to study on-campus is the Business Lab. It is quiet and less crowded than the library.
Favorite off-campus place to eat and/or hang out and why:
Grumps, because the cheeseburgers are awesome and I love the peanuts.
Favorite out of class book to read and why:
I really enjoyed “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert T. Kiyosaki.
Favorite Tarleton tradition and why:
My favorite Tarleton tradition is homecoming and class rings. I love homecoming, everything from the new tradition of the “launching of the ducks “to the bonfire, it is all amazing. I received my class ring at the ring ceremony so I’m excited to be a part of that tradition as well.
