James Nasados

James SpotlightMy major is Agricultural Education, Teaching Option.

Serving on AgSAC is important to me because it does a lot of the work to make sure events happen.  We communicate with clubs to get participation.  AgSAC is a way that the clubs can communicate to each other and to the college.  To me AgSAC is a good representation how we all have our different majors, departments, and clubs but we are all part of the same college and have many things in common. 

I like being a part of AgSAC because it allows me to work with all of the clubs and meet many different people involved in CALS.

The factors that influenced my decision to attend UI and select a major in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences were that I was active in the FFA in high school and enjoyed those experiences.  I liked the U of I because it provided many opportunities to get involved.  I also attended Vandal Friday as a high school senior and felt that UI is where I belonged.

My favorite experience as an AgSAC member probably would have to be the leadership retreat we took this fall.  It was fun just to get out and have some fun doing activities.  It was also good to get to know everybody on the team and how we could work better together.

A funny experience I recall as an AgSAC member would be going with Juan to cook crickets for the CALS Olympics Fear Factor competition.  Juan planned to cook them at a friend’s house but when we got there she wanted nothing to do with us cooking bugs in one of her pans.  In the end we got the crickets cooked and had them for the dining pleasure of all CALS Olympic competitors.

One of my favorite things about my major is the range of things you get to learn about and do.  You get to work with many different people and learn about many different things in agriculture.

I've had several great professors so it’s hard for me to pick one out.  If I had to pick one it would be Dr. Doumit from the AVS department.  I took his AVS 109 class as a freshman and liked the class.  I like the fact that he cares about teaching and is easy to talk to.

The exciting/interesting internships or summer experiences I have had during my college career would be last summer I traveled to Kansas State University in Manhattan Kansas to present research at the Reciprocal Meats Conference.  There people in the meat science industry and academia get together and share knowledge.  It was a good opportunity to network and find out more about other universities and possible careers.  I was also able to share some of the research we have been doing at the UI.
