About Attending WVU: “I am thankful for the amazing opportunities that WVU offered me. By being involved in student organizations, I gained knowledge, support, and relationships that helped me in my personal and professional life. I have always been passionate about horses and I knew from a very early age that I wanted to work with them in the future. Taking equine courses at WVU prepared me for having a career in the horse industry and helped make that childhood dream a reality.”
