Jamie Rand, a proud Fisheries and Wildlife major, came to Oregon State in pursuit of maintaining Oregon's natural beauty and the conservation of its wildlife.

Here's an excerpt from the article "Color of Happiness" by The College of Agricultural Science on Jamie's passion for the great outdoors:

"I am passionate about helping others and conserving the beautiful outdoors that we enjoy here in Oregon. One way that I love to connect with people and enjoy the outdoors is by fishing. The thing I love about fishing is its unpredictability. I want to take that passion for outdoor adventure and work to help conserve our amazingly diverse wildlife.

I chose Fisheries and Wildlife Sciences because I want to help manage our precious wildlife resources in Oregon and advance the agricultural industry through integrated pest management."
