The first week of school can be intimidating for incoming freshman and transfer students, but the College of Agriculture welcomes their students with a special Ram Camp Experience. This year the students in animal and equine science also got a tour of the newly renovated Animal Sciences building, a get up-close and personal with Cam the Ram, a riding demonstration by John Synder, the colt riding class instructor and coach of the ranch horse versatility team and Dr. Denniston, assistant professor and horse judging team coach took the ALS ice bucket challenge in the arena in front of the whole group.
There were also a few upgrades out at the equine center that happened over the spring and summer including new tie rails in the Adams-Atkinson Arena and a full-sized horse skeleton that was made by two students for their independent study project and is already being used for anatomy lessons. The school horses started their term helping students in multiple classes. We’re looking forward to a great year in both programs. Go Rams!
