"What surprised me the most was experiencing how diverse CALS' academics are. I came into CALS thinking it was mostly mostly a science-based college, but I quickly learned and embraced how interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary the classes, research and mission are. Through CALS, I found and explored both old and new interests that will carry with me into my professional and personal life after graduation." - Kimberly St. Fleur
