Meghan Randolph is a senior majoring in agriculture, food and natural resources education. Randolph's passion and ultimate aspiration is to help people work with horses. The following student view is repurposed content from the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
Q: Why did you choose the Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources Education major?
I chose my major because it offers a non-formal education degree. With the ability to align the education portion of my major to the coursework I have taken in equine studies, I will be prepared to teach in a horse facility. My major allows me to follow my passions to meet my career goals.
Q: What do you want others to know about this major?
This is the type of major that allows you to follow your own path. Whether you dream of working in a high school, in a poultry facility, with dairy or beef cattle or even with horses, this major allows you to meet your goals by giving you the tools to be successful when working with people in your chosen industry.
Q: What are your future plans?
MSU has taught me some valuable lessons, but just because I have graduated does not mean that my education is over. The equine industry is filled with amazing people that I hope to work for and learn from. I plan to enter the equine industry as a lesson instructor to continue to learn by doing. Someday, I plan to own my own riding center and build a lesson program.
Q: What’s your favorite thing about MSU?
My favorite thing about MSU is the opportunities that you can find if you have the courage to find them. The clubs and extracurriculars offered at MSU can expand on your coursework, give you the chance to network with people who share your passion and have fun! I will always be thankful for having the courage to tryout for the MSU Stock Seat Equestrian Team my freshman year because of all the things I learned and had a chance to experience during my years riding for the team.
