Our alumni have a history of going on to leadership roles in a variety of industries such as Agriculture, Pharmaceuticals, Biotechnology, Healthcare, Environmental Conservation, and Food Science.
The CALS Student Services office was established to connect local, national, and international employers with the talent pool in CALS, and prepare our students with the tools necessary to excel in their professional lives after college.
