Dear Mom and Dad, I am having a great first week at Cal Poly so far, and I just wanted to inform you about what I am going to be learning for the next four years. I am currently in an Agricultural Business major, but, as you know, I am working on switching over to Bio-resource and Agricultural engineering. I never had a passion for agricultural studies so I am trying to get over to the technical side of things where there are more job opportunities for the future that do not involve agriculture.

When I get over to the BRAE department I will be required to take a lot more math courses-just as much as any other type of engineer here would. I am looking forward to this very much, but I am also a bit worried about the rigor of these courses. They have quite a reputation. Even Bobby (older brother-environmental engineer, Jr. at Cal Poly) struggled with a lot of these courses, but I am determined to succeed in whatever courses I end up taking here, so do not worry about me. I hope you are all doing well without me, I will see you guys on Thanksgiving Weekend. Love, Adam Pescatore...
