About Attending WVU: “I loved how tight knit-knit the Davis College was and the relationships I was able to build with fellow students and professors. Even though I grew up around horses and cattle, I still learned a lot at WVU. The university has a lot to offer and sets you up for your dream career. One of the best parts about it is that I still keep in touch with some of my professors and I know that they will always be there for me if I ever need any support or guidance.”
