“One can receive a close relationship with the faculty that will enhance the reference for future jobs or graduate school applications. My piano and wildlife biology studies at UNK have served me well for the past two years. I have been able to give community performance in which I share my hunting stories while integrating these outdoor experiences into my music.”
