Wilmington College (WC) hosted a “Fall Agriculture and Equine Business Management Visit Day” where perspective WC students toured the campus and the farm, attended sessions on their potential field of study, and were able to ask questions to better understand the school.
Joel Penhorwood from Ohio Ag Net spoke to three students: Shay Kramer, Morgan Fackler, and Kacey Burns. Each of them explained how great the “hands-on” experience is, how well it prepares you, and how active it makes a student in their field.
Fackler said, “Since I am a biology minor, getting in the laboratory has helped me gained skills I will use in graduate school.”
Students were able to learn about concentration areas that include business, animal science, education, policy and advocacy, agronomy, and equine business.
Burns said, “Being at Wilmington has allowed me to have internship opportunities. I look forward to working in education, not in the classroom but rather in the community.”
