"During my Educational years at SUU I competed and won several national scholarships, travelships, and writing competitions with students from around the country and around the globe from several of the top Agriculture universities such as: Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, and Iowa State. I felt fully competent to compete and succeed because of the education and the staff backing I received from SUU. The one on one involvement with the faculty made it possible for the professors to write personal letters of recommendation which were a great asset in my applications. Thank you SUU for all you have done and are doing for your students."
