"I transferred to VU after being unsatisfied with the degree that I was pursuing at another school. I have always been involved in agriculture and was interested in finding a program that was affordable and close to home. The Agribusiness program met both my requirements. After completing the Associates degree, I decided that I would continue my education and complete the bachelor’s program to make me eligible for more job opportunities and careers that I would like to pursue.
