It's Been An Honor
For Senior Mikaela Wieland, part of the attraction of attending Purdue was the opportunity to tell her family's story.
The Princeville, Illinois native got her first experience promoting agricultural communication in high school by providing marketing services for her family's beef business. When she found out she could continue down that path as a career, she followed her interests to Purdue.
A member of the Honors program, Wieland has gravitated toward opportunities to be engaged with faculty and conduct research. She appreciates that many of the classes have been smaller and more discussion-based, enabling her to build strong relationships with members of the department.
