Hello everybody! I’m Ashtyn Humphreys. I am a senior at the University majoring in Agricultural Economics, with minors in Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Communications and Agribusiness Entrepreneurship. I was raised on our family’s farm outside of Odell, Nebraska where I grew up highly involved in everything in my community, especially 4-H and FFA where I showed beef cattle. In my first years of college, I found my love for Ag Econ and the agricultural industry as a whole, and am pursuing a career as an extension educator. Through involvement in different organizations, I have made lots of friends and love how East Campus provides that small college, home-away-from-home, feel. I’m excited to get to work with you all to help you find your place at UNL, on East Campus, and in the Ag Econ Department. Don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions! .

Hey everyone! I’m Ethan Kreikemeier, a Junior at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I am currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Ag Business with a minor in Agronomy. I grew up in a rural community in West Point, Nebraska. From a young age, I worked for my family’s feedlot operation where we raise cattle and grow row crops such as corn and soybeans. Coming from this background led me to pursue a collegiate experience at CASNR. Here at UNL, I am involved in NAYC and served as an executive in my fraternity – Alpha Gamma Rho. I also have the honor of being an ambassador for the Ag Econ department. In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with friends, playing cards, and going on random trips to my friends' farming operations. East Campus and CASNR provide a welcoming atmosphere and community that is unparalleled. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out! .

Hey! I’m Grace Timm, a second-year student at UNL studying agribusiness with pre-law, as well as a minor in Clifton Builders Management! Growing up in small-town Chappell, Nebraska I always understood the importance of agriculture, but it wasn’t until college I realized how much I LOVED it. I found my place within the ag econ world through agribusiness, especially with the option of potentially attending law school. On campus, I’m involved in Greek life, the National Agri-Marketing Association, and Clifton Builders. These organizations helped me find friends in every corner, and I love seeing what ways other people get involved, and what drives their passions! Feel free to reach out to me anytime! .

Hello everyone, my name is Kade Wiese. I am a junior at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln majoring in Agribusiness with a minor in Agribusiness Entrepreneurship (Engler). I grew up in Columbus, Nebraska where I learned the importance of agriculture in America and the impact our state has on the industry. About 45 minutes away from my hometown, my father and his two brothers grow corn and soybeans. My dad also owns and operates a chemical and fertilizer company 10 minutes east of Columbus. Through all of this exposure, I gained a love for ag and a burning desire to learn how the economics and business side of agriculture is run. Because of UNL, I have had the privilege and opportunity to accomplish both of those things by being involved in FarmHouse Fraternity, the Ag Economics/Agribusiness Club, the Engler Agribusiness Entrepreneurship Program, the National Ag-Marketing Association, CASNR Change Maker, and lastly, being an Ag Economics Ambassador. East Campus has become my second family, and I cannot wait for you to be a part of it too! I’m always available, so don’t hesitate to reach out to me!
