CAHNRS Coug Connections: Luke Williams

Posted by Scott Weybright | January 29, 2018

Each week, we showcase one of our CAHNRS Ambassadors, a student leadership organization that encourages students to pursue higher education and serves as a liaison between the college and the greater community. This week, we’re featuring Luke Williams, a sophomore from Enumclaw, Wash.

What are you studying?

I’m majoring in Agricultural Economics.

Why did you choose WSU?

WSU offers a major that I am both very interested in and passionate about. Campus is not too far and not too close to home.

What is special about being a CAHNRS Coug?

Feeling like you belong to something even bigger than a college education. CAHNRS offers a network of peers and unique experiences throughout your time as a Coug.

What is your favorite CAHNRS class so far and why?

Beef feedlots is a very informative and interesting class. It probably ties with microeconomics in terms of igniting my excitement to learn.

Who are influential professors that you’ve had, and how did they impact your life?

I admire Dr. Prera for his knowledge of economics and his laid back but straight forward lecture style classes. He solidified my interest in economics throughout my first semester.

What extracurricular activities are you involved in besides ambassadors?

I have yet to join any other clubs through the university. Besides ambassadors I spend my times hunting, fishing, or hiking out on the Palouse.

What is a fun fact about you?

People are often surprised at how well I can whistle. From imitating birds to keeping up with the radio.

What advice would you give an incoming freshman/high school senior to help them adjust to college?

If you are bored, then you are boring. There is always something to do, whether it is joining a club or going on an adventure off campus.
