Animal and Equine Sciences Welcomes Class of 2018

Dixie Crowe

The first week of school can be intimidating for incoming freshman and transfer students, but the College of Agriculture welcomes their students with a special Ram Camp Experience.


This year the students in animal and equine science got a tour of the newly renovated Animal Sciences building and got up-close and personal with Cam the Ram.  The freshman also watched a riding demonstration by John Synder, the colt riding class instructor and coach of the ranch horse versatility team. Dr. Denniston, assistant professor and horse judging team coach, took the ALS ice bucket challenge in the arena in front of the whole group.

There were also a few upgrades out at the equine center that happened over the spring and summer including new tie rails in the Adams-Atkinson Arena and a full-size horse skeleton that was made by two students for their independent study project that is being used for anatomy lessons. The school horses started their term helping students in multiple classes. We’re looking forward to a great year in both programs. Go Rams!
