As I think about my last semester as an undergraduate student and reflect on the last four (and a half) years, I’ve been thinking a lot about what has defined my academic experience here at Texas A&M. And I can without a doubt tell you that the minor and certificate I’ve earned along the way have greatly impacted my time here and my confidence in my education.
