Kya Vines

Kya Spotlight I am a junior majoring in Agricultural Education Teaching Option.  My favorite quote is: “It’s better to be hated for who you are than be loved for who your not”

Serving in AgSAC is important to me because I enjoy being involved in our college. When I say “our” college, I really mean it. CALS students are proud to say they are in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, there are other students at UI that do not even know what college they belong to. I love that our students care about our college and want to be involved. This makes my life as an AgSAC officer enjoyable because I am working for the students providing involvement opportunities.

I like being a part of AgSAC because I am able to work with great people putting together fun activities for CALS.

The factors that influenced my decision to attend UI and select a major in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences are that I wanted to teach and I wanted to be apart of agriculture, I had no idea this was possible until I visited the campus and met Dr. Foltz. Dr. Foltz met with my mom and I and told me about the option of Ag Education. There was no question about what I was going to major in and I am now a junior and I can’t wait to student teach next year!

So far my favorite experience as an AgSAC member would have to be spending time with all the officers, Katie, and Dr. Foltz at the corn maze on media night and going out to eat some funky delicious pizza that I would have never tried on my own.

A funny experience I had as an AgSAC member was when we were on our retreat we had to get across an obstacle course by swinging on tire swings in a row and not touching the ground.  The guys kept falling off but the girls had it down!

My favorite part of your major/department is that I will be combining my love of teaching and love for agriculture every day after I graduate. I can’t ask much more than that.

My favorite place on campus would have to be the ASM building. There is always good people, great food, and life lessons to be learned. 

There are many memories that I had made but one that really sticks out in my mind would have to be my freshman year joining the Student Idaho Cattlemen’s Association. The senior members took my freshman friends and I under their wings and showed us the ropes of being a student. I made great friends since I have been here and I am so glad that I chose to be a Vandal!!! 

The best part of being a Vandal is that I am the first Vandal after a line of Broncos! I am proud to break that bad habit and convincing my younger sister to join UI next year.

One exciting/interesting internship or summer experience I have had during my college career was when I went on the one-week dairy internship with Amin. We stayed in southern Idaho and toured and worked on dairy operations. I went with a great group of people and I learned so much and had a great time. I would recommend this to any AVS or AgEd student that wants to broaden their knowledge of agriculture.
