Class of 2021
Martinsburg, West Virginia
Ryan loves the feeling of home at WVU and the Davis College, where the classes are small and the faculty and staff are friendly and approachable. It made him feel like this was the place to be.
Ryan is a junior in Agribusiness Management, what he says is the perfect fit for him, because it has so much flexibility within the program. He always has the option to change his mind about the future while still being prepared for whatever career he ultimately chooses. After careful consideration, he has decided to take the skills he has learned in Agribusiness Management and operate a commercial food processing venture of his own. Starting small in his hometown, he hopes to process one or two items to sell to schools, hospitals, and restaurants. The flexibility of the Agribusiness Management program has allowed him to develop this business plan because he was able to take necessary classes in food science and food safety and still complete his degree on time.
