Posted by | March 2, 2017

Each week, we will showcase one of our CAHNRS Ambassadors.

This week, we’re featuring Alexan Ranney, a junior from Shelton, Wash.

What are you studying?

I’m majoring in Animal Sciences

What is a fun fact about you?

I’ve commercial fished for nine years.

Why WSU?

I knew immediately when I stepped on campus that WSU could be my second home. And I wasn’t wrong – WSU has given me a Cougar family, pride, and confidence in my future.

What is special about being a CAHNRS Coug?

CAHNRS is incredibly supportive, whether it’s the staff, my peers, or the alumni. When you’re in CAHNRS, you have a group to be closer with – one that also believes in your ability to succeed.

Where do you want to be (professionally or personally) 10 years after you graduate?

I’m hoping to be serving as a medical officer in the military, hopefully with veterinary medicine, while also fulfilling my dream and opening my own charity. I also want to be a published author too. ?

Favorite class you have taken within CAHNRS so far? Why?

Animal Science 172 – Dairy Management.

Favorite Ferdinand’s flavor of ice cream?
