Agricultural Communications and Leadership Loryn Dion Educational Goals I think the world today needs more people who are proficient in communications studies. Media is exponentially growing and becoming more complex. This means that people are going to be getting information in more ways than we already are.

I would love to travel to one of these schools and be able to work with students and professors who are already doing what I am hoping to accomplish.
