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 Rylee Suhadolnik, a senior from Prosser, Wash.
What are you studying?
I’m majoring in Agricultural Education.
Why did you choose WSU?
I was drawn to the small-town feel that the campus and community have.
What is special about being a CAHNRS Coug?
I think just feeling comfortable reaching out for help in CAHNRS and knowing that there will be so many people who care and can help is really special.
What is your favorite CAHNRS class so far? Why?
My favorite class has been AGTM 201, a metal fabrication class that teaches students several useful shop skills.
Who are influential professors that you’ve had, and how did they impact your life?
JD Baser has put in so much work and heart into the Ag Ed program and really cares about his students.
What extracurricular activities are involved in, besides ambassadors?
AGTM club, Ag Ed club, and intramural sports
What is a fun fact about you?
I can quote movies like it’s my job.
What advice would you give an incoming freshman/high school senior to help them adjust to college?
Try everything and then narrow it down to your favorites. So many freshmen don’t try any clubs/classes and don’t branch out, and then plenty of others join too many things and get overwhelmed. Try things, but don’t be afraid to pick your favorites and dedicate more time to those.
Favorite item/flavor at Ferdinand’s?
