Hey everyone! My name is Erika Harms, and I am currently a sophomore at the university studying Agribusiness, minoring in Ag Communications. I was raised on a farm in Glenvil, Nebraska. Growing up I spent time working on our farm, showing horses and enjoying the typical country girl things! Agriculture has always been a huge part of my life and I knew it was my designated path for a career. One of my favorite parts of East Campus is its small campus feel. It has turned into a home away from home, just without the cornfields. Besides being a Department Ambassador, I am the Secretary for the National Agri-Marketing Association and a member of Block and Bridle and the Alpha Zeta Honor Society. In the previous year I was also involved with the Equestrian team and Collegiate Farm Bureau. All of these activities have allowed me to meet lots of people and find what I am most passionate about. The university has given me many opportunities to network with professionals and explore various career fields. Feel free to ask me any questions you may have. I look forward to meeting all of your smiling faces!

Hello, my name is Darin Knobbe, I am a sophomore Agribusiness major from Imperial, Nebraska. Small town USA taught me the importance of being involved and pushing myself to succeed. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has given me many opportunities to continue to be actively involved and make a difference on campus. I serve as a student ambassador for the Agricultural Economics Department and am actively involved on campus. I am the Vice President of Programming in the National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA), a member of Ag Economics/Agribusiness Club (AEAC), actively involved as an Engler Entrepreneur, and a member of the Alpha Gamma Rho Fraternity. These clubs and organizations have taught me to think outside the box, push myself, and above all, appreciate what it means to fail. I have learned to embrace and learn from failure to make myself better and help others succeed. I look forward to helping you all succeed throughout your college career and lives, and if I can help in any way do not hesitate to ask me.
