"I found the department faculty very approachable and ready to answer any of my questions. Never once did I feel as though I had asked a question that was beneath them.” Ben Klein, a fourth-generation education graduate from Kearney State/UNK, has a natural love for the outdoors and a father who teaches high school biology. “I am genetically predisposed to teach biology."
