Why I chose K-State:

After completing a master's degree in entomology, I was looking for a PhD program, and I found K-State offers highly competitive Entomology program with diverse areas of research led by outstanding mentors. At that time, my husband was also working on a PhD at K-State. As such, K-State was perfect fit for me, both for academic and personal reasons.
