Meet CALS Ambassadors
One of my favorite parts about research is sharing my work and learning about other scientists’ experiments. I am grateful for the research experiences CALS has given me.
CALS is amazing because we are a large College with many different majors, but I still am able to find close connections within my major and classes.
I got the great opportunity to lecture and administer a class in machine learning through my project team Cornell Data Science.
CALS continues to exceed my expectations, from conversations with professors, incredible classes, and even the delicious lunches at Trillium. The Ag quad is such a special oasis and I'm constantly in awe of everything CALS has to offer.
Serving as a Teaching Assistant for Insect Biology, the first entomology class I took at Cornell, was especially important to me.
My CALS Moment? Visiting Stocking Hall for the very first time to pet some cows and try Cornell Dairy ice Cream!
Being part of a smaller major community within the CALS community is the perfect scenario for me.
The Animal Science Department is full of opportunities, but one that I’ve been enjoying and am looking forward to continuing this spring is the opportunity to be a Teaching Assistant (TA). As a TA, you get the chance to guide your peers through the classes you’ve excelled in.
I've had internships with several food start-ups and gained real-world experience in how businesses in the food and beverage industry operate.
I found some of my closest friends at Cornell through POST. POST is a week-long pre-orientation service trip that I did before my freshman year.
I'm a fit for CALS because I like to look at the larger picture of things to understand how it applies to myself, my community, and the world.
I have spent some time engaging with the Latino/a Studies Program and have enjoyed making connections with the faculty and students who are interested in developing resources for Latinx students at Cornell!
I am involved in the Cornell University Sustainable Design project team. The project I've been working on has the goal of making Ithaca a carbon-neutral city by 2030.
CALS is a great fit for me because of its humanitarian approach to the world, its motto "life-changing" really encompasses a core value I hold in regards to how I view my studies and the purpose behind it.
I had an internship where I helped rehabilitate horses that had been abused, which taught me a lot about handling such a large animal.
