Bree Harris, Student Ambassador of the College of Agriculture, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences, speaks with us about one of the biggest colleges at WSU and her role as one of the Student Ambassadors for CAHNRS. It is no secret that the college is percieved as only an agricultural college. But with 24 majors, 19 minors, and 27 graduate programs, it is actually much more diverse than what meets the eye.

We first touch base on the general overview of CAHNRS and the merits of the Student Ambassador Program within the college. The main focus of this interview is student-based and the array of popular majors available for students such as Viticulture, Forestry, Apparel, Merchandising, Design and Textiles. Harris' role is to make sure the resources available within CAHNRS is accessible to prospective students. This entails reaching out to high school students and students on campus.

The geographic region of WSU plays an integral role of the agricultural component of CAHNRS and also plays into the types of students that enter into the college due to the fact that this region of the northwest is very big on agriculture and other natural resource sciences. However, the CAHNRS' student ambassadors don't just stay in the Palouse for outreach, some events are held outside of this region. For instance, the Puyallup Fair in Puyallup, Washington was one of their destinations to represent the college in Western Washington.
