As part of the Spanish for the Ag Sciences program, I visited my first Latin American country and improved my Spanish during a month-long immersion experience in Costa Rica.

While the College of Ag Sciences’ Agricultural Progress Days event isn’t really a secret, it certainly isn’t as well known to college students as it should be. Finished yesterday, Ag Progress Days is held each year about 2 weeks before classes start and is the perfect combination of food, friends, and interactive learning.

Following our second place finish this summer on Lake Champlain, ERM grad Grae Buck and I had the opportunity to compete at the FLW College Fishing Northern Conference Championship on Philpott Lake in Virginia!

This weekend, Jess and I attended the Great Insect Fair in the Bryce Jordan Center.
