Kelli Schrag is a junior double majoring in Agricultural Communications and Journalism and Animal Sciences and Industry – Communications. Her dream job is to work in the marketing or communications department for a livestock association.
Schrag decided to follow her passions to figure out what she wanted to major in.
“Growing up, my two favorite things were livestock and photography,” said Schrag. “These majors combine my two passions and I’ve been able to learn more about each through the classes I’ve taken and the internships I’ve had.”
When Schrag isn’t hitting the books hard to manage being a double major, she is involved with Horse Judging Team, NCHA Judging Team, and Christian Challenge. Being involved outside the classroom has helped enhance her college experience.
“As part of the judging team, I was able to travel across the U.S. representing K-State at national contests,” said Schrag. “It was rewarding to see our hard work pay off and bring trophies back to campus. Being part of the K-State team has strengthened my love for the university!”
Not only has being involved impacted her college experience, a friend from her freshman year continues to remain a constant in Schrag’s life.
“Someone who has positively impacted my college experience is Katie Karst,” said Schrag. “Katie and I met my first semester of freshman year and we instantly connected. She has been a shoulder to cry on, a friend to laugh with and a definite ‘yes’ to Sonic runs ever since!”
One more positive impact on Schrag’s college years was the Kappa Alpha Theta sisterhood. She chose Theta because she felt like she could be herself around everyone she talked to during recruitment. That feeling has yet to change for Schrag and knew that other Thetas wanted to help her find her place at K-State.
“Theta has greatly benefited my college experience so far,” said Schrag. “I’ve made friends from all sorts of backgrounds that I know I can count on for anything. Theta has also given me the opportunity to put my leadership skills into action through officer positions and committees.”
