Many things are different this fall — but there are still plenty of ways to explore entrepreneurship at the College of Agricultural Sciences.

Thinking like an entrepreneur leads to success. Entrepreneurs try new things, aren't afraid to fail and quickly adapt to a changing reality.

No matter your current job or career goals, or whether you ever start a business, thinking like an entrepreneur leads to success.
