From Marysville, Ohio, Meredith Kiss attended the Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design to major in human nutrition and foods. She'll graduate in a few days with her bachelor's degree and move on to the Ohio State University to get her master’s degree and complete a dietetic internship.

She, along with her 13 senior classmates, applied to graduate dietetic internship programs and received a match, giving the program a 100% match rate for the third consecutive year. 

She plans to obtain her registered dietitian license and practice in a clinical pediatric setting.

"I also hope to have a family of my own while pursuing my dream career," Kiss said. "I hope I foster good relationships both at work and in my personal life along with finding a good work-life balance. I hope that I enjoy every single day to its fullest!"

Why did you choose to attend WVU Davis College? 

The WVU Davis College is home to my major, human nutrition and foods. This major is something I have been interested in since high school, so I decided to pursue it. I also took a tour of WVU when I was in high school, and I fell in love with the Evansdale Campus and the Agricultural Sciences Building.

What was your most valuable experience at Davis College? 

I always looked forward to the Davis College Welcome Back BBQ at the beginning of the fall semester. They have the best food and activities; it is overall a great atmosphere! It's fun to catch up with your friends and other students in your classes after summer break. This year, I even got to bring my puppy!

What advice do you have for current Davis College students? 

Go to all the events the Davis College offers. They are always a fun time, and it is a great way to build connections with faculty and other students.

What advice do you have for high school students? 

Make sure to take school seriously and try to achieve good grades. Enroll in as many college-credit classes in high school as you can, that way you can bypass them in college. Lastly, get involved in activities and clubs around your school. This will allow you to build lots of connections with other students and staff and make the best memories!
